NCAA BASKETBALL: ACC won't discipline Boeheim

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — The ACC commissioner said Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim won’t be disciplined after he came onto the court to protesting a key charging call during the Orange’s 66-60 loss at Duke over the weekend.
Commissioner John Swofford said he agreed with Boeheim’s ejection during Saturday’s game and noted the charge was a “judgment call” by officials.
Swofford wouldn’t say whether official Tony Greene made the right call when he whistled Syracuse’s C.J. Fair for charging with 10.4 seconds left, leading to Boeheim’s brief fit of rage. Duke won 66-60.
Swofford said the call is not something the conference will review.
