  • Syracuse Basketball Coach Jim Boeheim Kills a Man During Late Night Car Accident

"It's interesting how every issue in college basketball - amateurism, paying, going early - are all brought in at this point". 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. The Syracuse-Duke game started with a moment of silence to pay respects to the 51-year-old vehicle accident victim. He struck and killed Jimenez, who was standing outside his disabled vehicle which had collided with a guardrail.

Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim speaks at a news conference after the team's NCAA college basketball game against Duke in Syracuse, N.Y., Saturday, Feb. 23, 2019.

That's little solace for the longtime head coach. Lt. David Brown said the first responding officer on the scene was flagged down by Boeheim, who was shining his cell phone light to alert drivers of the scene.

Barrett had what might go down as the best game of his collegiate career. It's not going to be better next week. It's not going to be better next month.

The 18-year-old is the top basketball prospect in the United States and there was a collective gasp when he went down injured in the game against the University of North Carolina when his Nike's exploded just 33 seconds into the game. "This is something that's there forever for me". Williamson sat out the game at the Carrier Dome owing to the injury and according to Sporting News, he remains uncertain for the game against Virginia on Tuesday.

"I've tried to recruit a heck of a lot of kids that ended up being one-and-done, I just didn't get many of them", Williams said.

Boeheim, in his 43rd season as head coach at his alma mater, had addressed the team Thursday but did not take part in practice. "I don't think I can make anyone understand who hasn't been there". But there's nothing like this, when human life is lost, and you're there. "I just can't, I can't describe it to you".

Doubts about whether Boeheim might miss the game were dispelled Friday when Syracuse athletic director John Wildhack announced that the 74-year-old Boeheim would be on the sideline. "Juli and I extend our deepest sympathies to the Jimenez family". This isn't about me, and it doesn't matter how I feel.

"He looks strong and I'm glad he coached", Krzyzewski said.

A moment of silence was observed before the game for Jimenez and his family, and Boeheim made his way to center court and acknowledged the crowd with a brief wave before giving Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski a heartfelt hug.

"That was such an incredible environment".

"Zion is a player that attracts attention", Krzyzewski said. "They've always been supportive". Jim has created a family.
