Syracuse G Buddy Boeheim suspended for ACC Tournament game vs. Duke after striking Florida State player

I don’t want anything to take away from how well they played and what type of young man he is. The game is physical, you expect guys to bang and be aggressive. If something inadvertently happens, sometimes we want to categorize it one way or another. 

“I’ve lost my composure sometimes and made some mistakes. If there’s anybody in here who has not, I’d like for you to raise your hand. I know his family, I know his mother, I know Jim. I…
