Jim Boeheim Blasts ESPN Reporter, Talks UConn-Syracuse Rivalry

Here's the video of Jim Boeheim berating ESPN's Andy Katz, then talking about the UConn-Syracuse rivalry:

And here's Boeheim's explanation as to why he went off on Katz Wednesday night.

*** Anyway, quite a win for UConn on Wednesday in its final meeting with Syracuse as dual members of the Big East. Maybe the Huskies' best win since the national title victory in 2011? Here are the three best quotes of the night:

Shabazz Napier:

“Coach Blaney always tells me don’t ever throw an alley-oop to a white guy. A lot of people don’t realize it, but Niels has by far the best athleticism on the team. He does a lot of things that guys never see because he doesn’t have the opportulnity.”

Kevin Ollie:

“They can ban us from the postseason, they can ban us from the Big East tournament, but they can’t ban us from getting better and loving each other. That’s one thing I can say about this team: they really love being around each other. And it shows.”

Omar Calhoun:

"They've got to leave with the taste of UConn in their mouth (going) to the ACC."

And let's not forget the good play of Phil Nolan, thrust into 14 minutes of action with Enosch Wolf suspended and contributing five rebounds, a resounding blocked shot and some strong defensive play:

What's Boeheim talking about when he said if they signed the football contact we wouldn't have this problem?

He's talking about the TV contract the Big East could have signed a couple of years ago that was worth far, far more than what the league will eventually get. Boeheim asserts that if that contract had been signed, Syracuse (and, most likely, the other football schools) would not have considered leaving the Big East.
