Jim Boeheim Ejected After C.J. Fair Offensive Foul Leads to Syracuse Loss

With No. 1 Syracuse down by two points to No. 5 Duke at Cameron Indoor on Saturday, C.J. Fair was called for an offensive foul on a layup that could have tied the game for the Orange in the final 15 seconds. Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim was livid, and his reaction earned him two technicals and an ejection. 

 

In order for an offensive foul to be called, the defensive player has to be set before the offensive player begins his upward motion. Boeheim did not believe that was the case here. We're not professional lip-readers, but it seems obvious what he was saying.

 

Boeheim's two technicals gave the Blue Devils four free throws, three of which they made. The Orange ended up losing the game, 66-60, and have now lost their second consecutive game after going undefeated in their first 25 games of the season.
