Syracuse star Boeheim suspended after punch during ACC game


AP College Sports Writer

NEW YORK (AP) — Syracuse star Buddy Boeheim has been suspended for the Orange’s Atlantic Coast Conference Tournament game against Duke after he punched Florida State’s Wyatt Wilkes in the stomach Wednesday during a second-round ‘s victory. Boeheim, the team’s leading scorer, was not called for a foul after he swung his right hand into Wilkes’ midsection as he turned to run back to the defensive end. Wilkes doubled over and squatted for a moment after being struck about midway through the first half. Boeheim, the son of Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim, released a statement after the game, saying he apologized “multiple times” to Wilkes after the game. Syracuse will face top-seeded Duke on Thursday in the quarterfinals.
