WATCH: Jim Boeheim's son hits 1st college shot for Cornell directly in front of dad

Syracuse and Cornell squared off in their respective season-openers on Friday evening, pitting Jim Boeheim on his son Jimmy Boeheim inside the Carrier Dome.

In a development as good as a script from the movies, Jimmy, a freshman at Cornell, knocked down his first-ever college shot -- a 3-pointer right in front of the Syracuse bench. It triggered quite a hilarious response from his father, who had an up-close view of the big shot that put the Big Red up early.

Son might've thrown the first punch, but dad got the last laugh as Syracuse captured a 77-45 win over Cornell. Jimmy scored 11 points on 4-of-13 shooting, 5 of which came in the opening two minutes of action.

"The way he started out I was a little bit worried," Boeheim said of his son after the game. "I think Jimmy is gonna be real good...it's going to take some time."
