SYRACUSE, N.Y. - Syracuse University chancellor Nancy Cantor gave men's basketball coach Jim Boeheim a vote of confidence Tuesday amid an investigation of child molestation allegations against his former longtime assistant coach. Cantor emerged from an economic development conference with state officials and said: "Coach Boeheim is our coach. " Some commentators and sex-abuse victims' advocates had said Boeheim should resign or be fired after three men, including two former Syracuse ball boys, accused former assistant coach Bernie Fine of molesting them and Boeheim verbally attacked the accusers.

Mike Krzyzewski (936) and Bob Knight (902) are the only other men's Division I coaches to win that many games. Detroit Mayor Dave Bing, Boeheim's college roommate, teammate and fellow Hall of Famer, and Roosevelt Bouie, a star on Boeheim's first team in 1976-77, were in the Carrier Dome crowd of 17,902.

NEW YORK - Two men who say they were molested by an assistant basketball coach at Syracuse University have sued the school and men's basketball coach Jim Boeheim for defamation. Former Syracuse ball boys Bobby Davis and Mike Lang say they were molested by assistant coach Bernie Fine, who has since been fired and has denied the allegations. A third man also has accused the 65-year-old Fine, who had been Jim Boeheim's top assistant since 1976. The U.S. attorney's office is investigating.

SYRACUSE, N.Y. - Syracuse men's basketball coach Jim Boeheim ran a closed practice Monday as sex abuse victims' advocates questioned whether he should still coach following the firing of longtime assistant Bernie Fine, who has been accused of molestation by three men. As criticism swirled about Boeheim's initial support of Fine and his verbal attacks on the accusers, the coach kept a low profile, seeking refuge in his office on the second floor of...

Syracuse center Rony Seikaly, in a show of non-solidarity on the eve of the NCAA semifinals, said he probably would not be playing for the Orangemen if Jim Boeheim's assistant, Bernie Fine, were not there. Boeheim and Seikaly have been staging a running verbal battle all season, so much so that Seikaly (a junior) has thought about passing up his senior year and declaring for the NBA draft. "Thank God Bernie is here with me," Seikaly said. "I wouldn't still be at Syracuse without him. He's the one who always tries to relax the situation.

Dave Johnson made a pair of easy lay-ins off lob passes from Billy Owens in overtime and third-ranked Syracuse held off ninth-ranked St. John's, 92-86, last night in Syracuse, N.Y., in a game matching two of the nation's undefeated teams. Johnson scored six of his 22 points in the extra period to keep Syracuse (13-0) unbeaten and make Jim Boeheim the winningest coach in Syracuse history. St. John's dropped to 9-1 in losing the Big East Conference opener for both teams. The win was the 356th of Boeheim's 15-year career at Syracuse, moving him one game ahead of Lew Andreas (1925-1950)

Having received limited playing time in two years at Syracuse, former Lower Merion High basketball standout B.J. Johnson said Thursday he will transfer. "He wants a chance to go somewhere where he can maximize his playing potential, get 25 minutes or more a game," said his father, Bobby Johnson. "And with the year off, he'll have time to work on his body and put on a few pounds. " Johnson made the announcement the same day that Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim said in an hour-long news conference that he and the university will appeal punishments for academic and benefits violations.

Were Villanova fans going to storm the court just for forcing overtime? It was that kind of Saturday at the Wells Fargo Center. The home team trailed for all but 24 seconds of regulation. The visiting team was Syracuse. "I think sometimes we don't thank our rivals enough," Villanova coach Jay Wright said later. "When Syracuse comes in here, this place is rocking. I'll tell you, I don't like it when they have a lead at the end and this place is chanting, 'Let's go Orange.' But I know our people get fired up when they come in here.

Rakeem Christmas can't help but laugh when he hears himself described as a garbage man. A former McDonald's all-American from the Academy of the New Church, the 6-foot-9 Philadelphia native has spent most of his career at Syracuse around the basket making athletic putbacks and blocking shots. His lagging offensive game - coupled with the fact that Syracuse (6-3) is usually loaded with talent - has never caught up with the once-lofty expectations. But this season, his final with the Orange, things seem to be coming together.

BUFFALO, N.Y. - This is apparently a minority opinion, and so be it. But putting Villanova and Saint Joseph's in adjacent spots in the same NCAA Tournament bracket is a cynical, lousy bit of business committed by the selection committee. A Holy War in March is wholly unnecessary. It plays to story lines and television ratings and misses the point of the thing entirely. Philadelphia does not get everything right, but it does get college basketball right. When it comes to this time of year, we celebrate the wins and lament the losses and that's about as critical as we get. We hope, most of all, that everyone gets something good out of the journey - and, best of all, sports writers get a chance to avoid writing about Chip Kelly and DeSean Jackson for a week or 2. But this bracket intrudes on that mindset.

BUFFALO - Behind Jim Boeheim, his Syracuse players had begun filing on to the First Niagara Arena floor for practice, and he turned wistful for a moment, flattening his mouth and shaking his head as he paused to consider what might have been. Michael Carter-Williams and Nerlens Noel on the same college team? It might have happened. It almost happened. "Yeah," Boeheim said, "it could have. " Besides the Sixers' Brett Brown, there may be no basketball coach who can offer better insight into Carter-Williams and Noel and their potential than Boeheim.

It has been 23 years since a team reached 30-0, something No. 2 Wichita State did when it became the first Division I basketball team to reach 30 wins in the regular season when it defeated Bradley, 69-49, earlier this week. The Shockers, at this point - despite a weak schedule that features just one good win against St. Louis - have nothing to prove to their detractors who think they should not be a top seed in the NCAA tournament. The Shockers have one more regular-season game against Missouri State this weekend, and nobody in the Missouri Valley Conference tournament likely represents more than a speed bump on the way to entering March Madness undefeated.

Rodney Hood scored 13 points and drew the game-changing charging call that helped No. 5 Duke beat top-ranked Syracuse, 66-60, Saturday night in Durham, N.C. Jabari Parker had 19 points and 10 boards for the Blue Devils (22-6, 11-4 ACC). Jerami Grant scored 17 for the Orange (25-2, 12-2), who have lost two straight. Syracuse had the ball, down by 60-58, in the final seconds when C.J. Fair drove past Tyler Thornton along the baseline for an apparent tying layup. But official Tony Greene whistled Fair for charging - and when Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim shot onto the court to argue, Greene slapped him with two technical fouls and handed the Hall of Fame coach the first regular-season ejection of his career.

Villanova coach Jay Wright used to refer to the annual "old" Big East rivalry with Syracuse as "like a love-hate," especially those trips to the cavernous and loud Carrier Dome. "We love it but the games are so tough," Wright said. "It's a really hard place to play up there, but we love going up there. You love the experience, even when you lose. Everybody up there is so nice to you, they really are. " The eighth-ranked Wildcats (11-0) will receive that same Upstate New York hospitality, and the typically tough opponent, on Saturday when they meet fellow unbeaten and No. 2 Syracuse (11-0)

HOLY FAMILY men's basketball coach R.C. Kehoe can't wait. Either, he said, can his team. On Friday, the Division II Tigers will take on Syracuse in an exhibition in the Carrier Dome. "Excited is an understatement," Kehoe said. "I don't know what the crowd will be like, but I'm expecting about 15,000. It's the largest on-campus arena in the country. " The Dome's capacity is listed at 49,250. Holy Family's Campus Center Gymnasium only seats 1,000. So, don't be surprised if Kehoe's team looks as wide-eyed as those Hickory High players did when they showed for the state championship game at Hinkle Fieldhouse.

JA'QUAN NEWTON is not yet sure what course of study he'll pursue in college, but he does know he plans to have fun trying one specific extracurricular activity. "I'm gonna learn how to surf," he cracked. Reason: Newton, a 6-3, 176-pound guard and rising senior at Ss. Neumann-Goretti High, and widely considered one of the country's top 50 prospects, has decided to play his college basketball at the University of Miami. His Final Six also included Syracuse, Texas A&M, Oregon, Minnesota and UCLA and some folks figured Newton might go with 'Cuse because recent N-G products Rick Jackson and Antonio "Scoop" Jardine enjoyed productive careers for coach Jim Boeheim.
