Gut Punch: Buddy Boeheim Connects With Florida State Player’s Chest (Update)

Videos by OutKick

March Madness officially heated up Tuesday night with fans fighting each other during the Wagner-Bryant NEC Championship Game and then cranked up yet again Wednesday when Syracuse’s Buddy Boeheim unleashed a gut punch on a Florida State player.

(Update: Buddy Boeheim has been suspended for one game, and will miss Thursday’s ACC Tournament game against Duke.)

Wyatt Wilkes was on the receiving end of the Boeheim cheapshot midway through the first quarter of Wednesday’s game in Brooklyn.

Boeheim wasn’t called for a foul and there wasn’t a review of the action.

You make the call: Is this an ejectable offense or just tough March Madness basketball?

If you were looking for a storyline out of the ACC Tournament other than Coach K’s farewell tour, you got it. Duke would play Syracuse Thursday at noon if the ‘Cuse can hold onto a 19-point lead and beat Florida State.

Dirty Buddy Boeheim vs. Duke? Buckle up.


Buddy’s father has weighed in on the punch. “Inadvertent,” Jim said.
