Jim Boeheim confirms he’ll accept 9-game suspension, appeal not being able to coach in practice

first_img Published on March 19, 2015 at 12:03 pm Contact Matt: [email protected] | @matt_schneidman Facebook Twitter Google+ Jim Boeheim will “absolutely” appeal his nine-game suspension to start conference play next season, he confirmed at his Thursday morning press conference in the Carrier Dome.“Every penalty is a penalty on the coach. Every penalty is a penalty on the school,” Boeheim said. “They can separate it, but if I can’t coach nine games, it hurts the players and it hurts the school.”Boeheim added that he’s accepting the nine-game suspension, but will appeal the more extensive restrictions the suspension places on him. He said he’ll appeal because he thinks the punishments are based on people not even at the school anymore.“The nine-game suspension affects all the players on next year’s team,” Boeheim said. “I would appeal that I could coach in practice and take the punishment of not coaching in games.”The NCAA report states that Boeheim can’t be in the same arena where games are being played during the suspension, and can’t communicate with any players or staff members during the time.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textHe emphasized how that rule will make it even more difficult to prepare players for games rather than if he was simply banned from in-game coaching. The head coach will also be forbidden from attending any recruits’ games or communicating with any recruits in another way.Syracuse University Chancellor Kent Syverud announced in an email on Wednesday that the school would also be appealing the vacation of wins for the men’s basketball program and scholarship reductions from the team.It is unclear how many wins the NCAA will force SU to vacate, but the team knows it will lose 12 scholarships over a four-year span starting during the 2016-2017 season, with three taken away in each year.

Penge doubles up in the Lincolnshire sunshine

first_img Marco Penge extended his remarkable season by becoming the English Boys under 16 and under 15 champion in the heat of Seacroft Golf Club on the Lincolnshire coast.Final day rounds of 67 and 73 gave the Sussex youngster a 72-hole aggregate of 283, one under par, and a three stroke winning margin from his England colleague Bradley Moore and Lincolnshire’s own Billy Spooner.Taking both titles meant Penge (image copyright Leaderboard Photography) has collected four titles this year but the most significant to date is the under 16 McGregor Trophy as it means he is a national champion and joins an illustrious Roll of Honour that includes the likes of Justin Rose and several other who have gone on to be tour professionals.“It’s been a great year for me so far,” said Penge. “But this is big. It’s a national title and follows my win in the Fairhaven. “But I didn’t play great this week. I wasn’t good off the tee, I was just trying to get it down the fairway but my short game was good.“Perhaps I was a bit rusty as I’ve played a lot of golf recently. I had a lesson on Saturday with Ryan Fenwick at Goodwood after last week’s European Boys Team Championships and I’m off to Germany on Sunday for the European Young Masters.”Penge began the day one shot off the lead but a morning 67 took him ahead and despite a few wobbles in his 73, he managed to stay there. “I got off to a good start and was two under after three holes this afternoon,” he added.“But I bogeyed the fourth and sixth holes to be out in 36. But then I found a trap off the 11th tee and made another bogey followed by another dropped shot at the 13th but I managed to par in from there.”Moore, one of four players sharing the lead before the final two rounds, shot a morning 70 to lie one behind Penge but a closing 74, which included two double bogeys on the front nine and another at the tenth, left him disappointed.“I knew after 14 holes that I was two behind but it was my putting that let me down,” said the lad from Derbyshire. “I just couldn’t hole anything again and that has been my problem this week.”But for an opening 77, Spooner would have taken the title back to Lincolnshire for the first time since Jim Payne in 1987. But the Boston lad played the last three rounds in four under par, the best of the 45 players that made the cut. He deserves his joint second place for that alone, his closing 69 meant he caught Moore over the final stretch.Ireland’s Peter Kerr moved up the leaderboard with a morning 70 before a closing 73 earned him a share of fourth place on 288 with Essex-based Louis Lazarus, who also returned a closing 69.But the best round of the afternoon, a 68, was posted by John Axelsen, the young Dane who set a course record 66 in round one. He followed that with a disastrous 82 in the wind of day two but the 68 restored a smile to the young man’s face as he finished in a share of sixth place on 291. 18 Jul 2013 Penge doubles up in the Lincolnshire sunshine last_img read more
