Boeheim to coach Syracuse vs. No. 1 Duke after fatal crash

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

Jim Boeheim will coach Syracuse against top-ranked Duke on Saturday night, his team's next game after Boeheim struck and killed a pedestrian on a darkened highway.

A moment of silence, in English and Spanish, was observed for the victim, 51-year-old local man Jorge Jimenez and his family.

Syracuse athletic director John Wildhack said in a release Friday that Boeheim will resume coaching duties three days after the crash. The Boeheim family is heartbroken over what happened, as we all are.

Sobriety tests for Boeheim and the driver of the other vehicle were negative.

Tyus Battle scored 16 points on 4-of-17 shooting, Elijah Hughes had 12 points and Frank Howard and Marek Dolezaj, before fouling out with 1:41 remaining, each added 10 points for Syracuse (18-9, 9-5), which was trying to build on Wednesday night's trouncing of No. 18 ranked Louisville.

Patriots owner Robert Kraft charged with soliciting prostitutes
Kraft purchased the Patriots in 1994 for $175 million and is also the owner of the New England Revolution and the Kraft Group . A spokesman for the Patriots owner is quoted as saying: "We categorically deny that Mr Kraft engaged in any illegal activity".

Police called it a tragic accident, saying no criminal charges are expected, and commended the 74-year-old Boeheim for his reaction, calling 911 and using his cellphone light to warn oncoming cars of the collision. The record crowd at the Carrier Dome gave him a massive standing ovation.

On Wednesday night, Jimenez was in a vehicle that lost control, swerved into a guardrail and ended up in the middle of I-690 eastbound near Thompson Road, a Syracuse Police Department spokesman said. More details regarding Boeheim as they become available.

Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski said Thursday the team's medical staff will make sure Williamson is 100 percent healthy before he returns to play. 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.

Williamson suffered a leg injury roughly 36 seconds into the Duke Blue Devils' game against the University of North Carolina Tar Heels.

Zion Williamson remains a question mark in Duke's game against Virginia Tech tomorrow. The Carrier Dome, which is also home to the Orange's football team, can hold up to 50,000 fans when set up for the gridiron. "I just can't, I can't describe it to you". Duke freshman RJ Barrett, who leads the team in scoring (23.1 points per game entering Saturday), utilized crafty inside moves to score a game-high 30 points. It's one of those things.
