Adjust Comment Print

Police say Syracuse men's basketball coach Jim Boeheim struck and killed a 51-year-old man walking outside his vehicle on a highway near Syracuse, N.Y., Wednesday, Feb. 20, 2019. "Our hearts go out to all those impacted by the tragic accident involving Coach Boeheim", Wildhack said. The oncoming vehicle, driven by Boeheim, then tried to avoid the disabled auto but hit Jimenez, who was standing on the side of the road, police said.

According to media reports, Jimenez's vehicle was disabled, and Boeheim swerved around the vehicle to avoid crashing into it.

No tickets have been issued and field sobriety tests were negative.

The first Duke-North Carolina matchup of the season went to the Tar Heels thanks to their surprising 16-point blowout victory over the Blue Devils at Cameron Indoor Stadium. "That was fine with his coach, who said he told him, "'Okay, just be you on the bench and be you in the locker room".

The number-one ranked Blue Devils are 24-3 for the season and 12-2 against Atlantic Coast Conference opponents. The Orange couldn't match him, as junior star Tyus Battle struggled, scoring 16 points on 4-of-17 shooting, and they were ice-cold from deep, making 5 of 23 attempts.

The largest on-campus crowd of all time helped the Orange weather the storm in the first half, with the energy in the Dome giving life to the zone. O'Connell's breakout performance could be the most positive development from the game for Duke, if he's able to expand his role on offense and replicate his three-point success in the weeks to come.

Williamson, the presumed No. 1 pick in the 2019 National Basketball Association draft, traveled with the team to Syracuse and was his typical boisterous self on the Duke bench.

There is a fascination as well as a natural curiosity about Williamson, the 6-foot-7, 285-pound athletic freak who is simply one of college basketball's most celebrated freshmen ever. The Syracuse coach had no alcohol in his system and it appears as though it was all a freak accident. The Orange displayed solid, hustling defense in the lopsided win over Louisville and getting that intensity back is key going forward with only four games left in the regular season.

Then on March 9 in Chapel Hill, Duke will try to repeat what it accomplished Saturday at Syracuse: going on the road against an ACC foe with the goal of avenging a previous home loss.
