Syracuse’s Buddy Boeheim suspended for punching opponent during ACC tournament game

The ACC has announced that Syracuse's Buddy Boeheim will be suspended for one game

During the Orange victory over the Seminoles, he punched Wyatt Wilkes of Florida State

About four hours after the incident, a game was suspended for "aerial action."

Jim Boeheim dismissed the idea of his son possibly being suspended when asked about it

The incident occurred in the middle of the first half, which would have turned 96-57 in favor of Syracuse.

“In the heat of today’s game, after some shoving in the lane, I swung my arm while turning to go back up the court,” Boeheim said

The Orange (16–16) likely need to win the ACC tournament to reach the NCAA tournament
