Jim Boeheim: Syracuse Sanctions 'Unduly Harsh'

Rich Barnes/Getty Images(SYRACUSE, N.Y.) -- Syracuse men's basketball coach Jim Boeheim doesn't think the penalties given to his program by the infractions committee are fair.

Boeheim said Thursday that he did not have any "personal involvement" in the findings by the NCAA.

"I believe the penalty imposed on the university as a whole and me individually are unduly harsh," said Boeheim. "I feel that the NCAA is punishing current and future student athletes for the conduct of a few individuals who are no longer associated in anyway with Syracuse University."

Boeheim will be suspended for nine ACC games next year after the Infractions Committee Report put the team on a five-year probation, vacated 108 wins and took away scholarships.

"I have chosen to appeal the committee on infractions decision," Boeheim continued. "I believe in what we are doing in Syracuse University and I will continue to build on the great program we established."

Boeheim confirmed that he is set to retire in three seasons.

"Three years is probably longer then I was planning prior to this investigation," Boeheim said. "Given all of these developments, it is the right time for the program."

Boeheim also gave his support for assistant Mike Hopkins, but said that there was no confirmation that he would be the next head coach.

Jim Boeheim Set to Retire in Three Years

Nate Shron/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Syracuse Chancellor Kent Syverud announced on Wednesday that Jim Boeheim intends to retire in three years.

Boeheim is the longest tenured coach in Division I men's basketball.

Boeheim will be suspended for nine ACC games next year after the Infractions Committee Report put the team on a five-year probation, vacated 108 wins and took away scholarships.

"Coach Boeheim has assured me that he will respond thoughtfully and appropriately to the serious findings of the Infractions Committee Report," Syverud said in the message to the university.  

"Coach Boeheim has also told me that he intends to retire as Head Coach in three years," the message continued.  "His goal in making this decision and announcement now is to bring certainty to the team and program in the coming years, and enable and plan for a successful, longer-term transition in coaching leadership. Coach Boeheim’s commitment to ensuring that the men’s basketball program remains strong even after his tenure is just one more example of his deep loyalty to our University."

Boeheim has been involved with the school since enrolling as a student in 1962.

Athletic director Daryl Gross resigned to take another position at the school following the NCAA laying down the penalties on March 6.

Veteran Safety Steve Gregory Retires from the NFL 

Scott Boehm/Getty Images(NEW YORK) --  After eight seasons, veteran safety Steve Gregory is retiring from the NFL.

The Kansas City Chiefs signed Gregory last month to add depth to their secondary, but he announced his retirement in a statement over the weekend which was released via his agent David Canter.

"It is with tremendous respect, appreciation, and admiration for the game of football that I've decided to announce my retirement effective immediately," Gregory said.  "After entering the game as an undrafted free agent, I was fortunate to play twice as long as the average player."

"I'm tremendously happy with my decision and being able to walk away from this great game both healthy and on my own terms," he added.  "I would be remiss in announcing my retirement without thanking my great family, coaches, teammates, scouts, trainers, agent, and all of the fans that have supported me along the way."

Gregory, 31, spent the first six seasons of his NFL career with the San Diego Chargers, who signed him as an undrafted free agent back in 2006.  He also played two seasons with the New England Patriots.  He retires with seven interceptions, three sacks, and two touchdowns over 111 career games.

Virginia Dunks (4) Syracuse to Claim ACC Crown 

Rich Barnes/Getty Images Sport(CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va.) --  Malcolm Brogdon scored a career-high 19 points as No. 12 Virginia outlasted fourth-ranked Syracuse 75-56 on Saturday.

The victory was the 13th in a row for the Cavaliers (25-5, 16-1 ACC), and secured their first outright ACC regular-season championship in 33 years.

"Super exciting," Brogdon said after the game. "You could do nothing but smile at that point when you beat a good team like that and you're having success like we're having. It's surreal when you think about it."

Senior Akil Mitchell added 12 points and nine rebounds in his final home game.  Mike Tobey and Justin Anderson chipped in 11 points apiece.

C.J. Fair and Tyler Ennis each led the Orange (26-3, 13-3 with 13 points.  Syracuse has now lost for the third time in four games.

"They had a tremendous second half. They proved that they could hit those 3s, and got it going a little bit," Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim said. "Everyone knows they are a tremendous defensive team and they are also an impressive 3-point team. They got going in the second half. I have thought that for a couple weeks, that they have been by far the best team."

No. 5 Duke Outlasts Top-Ranked Syracuse 66-60

Grant Halverson/Getty Images Sport(DURHAM, N.C.) --  Freshman phenom Jabari Parker scored 19 points and grabbed 10 rebounds as No. 5 Duke outlasted top-ranked Syracuse 66-60.

Rodney Hood added 13 points and drew a key charge for the Blue Devils (22-6, 11-4 ACC), who avenged their overtime loss to Syracuse earlier this season at the Carrier Dome.

Duke was clinging to a 60-58 lead in the final few seconds when Orange forward C.J. Fair drove the lane and hit what was believed to be the game-tying layup.  Official Tony Greene whistled Fair for a game-changing offensive foul.  

Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim stormed the court to argue the call, but he was charged with two technical fouls and ejected from the game.  Quinn Cook iced the game for Duke with three free throws.

"I just thought that was the worst call of the year, that's all," Boeheim said. "I hated to see the game decided on that call."

Jerami Grant led the Orange (25-2, 12-2) with 17 points while Fair added 13.  Syracuse has now lost two straight after starting the season 25-0.
