NCAA Basketball Highlights: Duke 66 – Syracuse 60


Jim BoeheimDURHAM, NC – If the first ACC meeting a month ago between Duke and Syracuse that ended in an overtime thriller didn’t ensure this will be a huge rivalry for years to come, Saturday night’s contest at Cameron Indoor Stadium sure did.

The Blue Devils outlasted the Orange 66-60 after Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim was ejected for vehemently arguing a charge call on C.J. Fair. Fair made the layup, which would’ve tied the game late in regulation.

Boeheim stormed onto the court and immediately received a pair of technical fouls and was tossed from the game. Duke made three of the four ensuing foul shots to put the game away.

Dave Sims and Bill Frieder called the action on WestwoodOne Sports.

(Michael Gbinije scores and Syracuse leads early)

(Jabari Parker’s tip dunk gives Duke a 55-49 lead)

(Rakeem Christman pulls Syracuse within a point late)

(C.J. Fair is called for a charge and Boeheim is ejected)
