Three days after the Hall of Fame coach of the Syracuse Orange struck and killed a pedestrian on a darkened highway that leads out of town, he returned to the bench Saturday night. Another man in the vehicle suffered minor injuries.
Less than one minute into Wednesday's game, Williamson slipped as he planted hard near the free throw line and broke through his left shoe, falling awkwardly. Hours before tipoff, a Syracuse student took to the mic to instruct fellow students on what to say when the opposing Duke players were introduced. The loss dropped the Blue Devils to 23-3 on the season. The Boeheim family is heartbroken over what happened, as we all are.
"Our offense is really the difference", Boeheim said. Barrett consistently found space in the Syracuse zone and shot well, going 14-of-20 from the floor and racking up 30 points. They're a tremendous offensive team.
You couldn't make up these storylines if you tried. "It was just great having him there".
The game set a record for an on-campus basketball game, eclipsing the mark of 34,446, twice against Duke. New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski, wearing a No. 4 Syracuse jersey, also attended and sat just to the right of the Syracuse bench.Читайте также: Oppo’s Folding Phone Patent Looks Impressively Clean With No Bezels, Pop-Up Camera
Duke: Williamson is recovering from a sprained knee.
Williamson has avoided a more substantial injury, as he was officially diagnosed with a Grade 1 knee sprain.
"My decision to coach this game, all I can say is I felt the responsibility and obligation to my players and the members of my basketball team", said Boeheim, in his 43rd season coaching Syracuse.
