ACC: Jim Boeheim won't face any further punishment after tirade

By Jeff Borzello | College Basketball Writer

The biggest talking point coming out of Saturday's loaded slate of games was the outburst by Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim, which earned him two technical fouls and an ejection in the 66-60 loss to Duke.

But there will be no further action taken against Boeheim, according to

Conference spokesperson Amy Yakola told the site the technicals and ejection would be the extent of Boeheim's punishment.

Boeheim was livid after Syracuse forward C.J. Fair was called for a charge on his baseline drive and finish with 10 seconds left and the Orange down by two. Boeheim thought Duke forward Rodney Hood should have been called for a blocking foul.

He ran onto the court, dropped several profanities and was ejected after receiving two technical fouls. Duke extended its lead from two to six for the final margin.
