This just in from the lie-witness news desk: Jim Boeheim may have coached his last home game at Syracuse and could be ready to retire at the end of the season. Chalk it up to just another Internet rumor? Yes, sort of, except the story was picked up (briefly) by Syracuse's official Twitter account, which set off the kind of mayhem you might expect that might cause. Oh, this silly social network thing. The rules of journalism used to be “who, what, when, where and why.” Now it's often “who, what, when, where,” and “oops.” It seems a blogger at a community college in Syracuse reported Boeheim had been asked to retire at the end of the season.

Coach Mick Cronin of No. 11-ranked Cincinnati had a sideline meltdown Saturday when a call went against his Bearcats in a 51-44 loss to unranked Connecticut, but he didn't receive a technical foul even after a heated exchange with referee Teddy Valentine. A very animated Cronin appeared to be berating Valentine as he approached the sideline after giving possession of the ball to the Huskies following a scrum underneath the Bearcats' basket. Cronin, who had to be restrained by players and eventually pulled away by an assistant coach, was most upset that Valentine had confronted him. "I don't appreciate people getting in my face,” Cronin told reporters after the game.

Syracuse Coach Jim Boeheim won his 903rd game Wednesday night, passing Bob Knight for second place on the all-time list for most victories among men's Division I basketball coaches. Only Duke's Mike Krzyzewski has more. Writers from around Tribune Co. discuss where Boeheim should rank among the all-time great college basketball coaches. Feel free to join the conversation by leaving a comment of your own. Diane Pucin, Los Angeles Times Assuming that Duke's Mike Krzyzewski is and will remain the best with his 940 wins and counting, the debate over No. 2 is a battle between Jim Boeheim and Bob Knight, and possibly Adolph Rupp.

Ask Louisville Coach Rick Pitino or Syracuse's Jim Boeheim about Madison Square Garden or Big East Conference founder Dave Gavitt. Even the tight-lipped Boeheim becomes sentimental and is apt to weave a story about a Big East classic. "I would have been happy if someone said, 'Coach, you're going to coach Syracuse and be in this league 10 years,'" Boeheim said. "'We'll give you 10 pretty good years, but that's it.' I'd have said, 'OK, I'll take it,' right then. It just has been unbelievable.

From Seton Hall Coach P.J. Carlesimo: "Right now, Jim Boeheim (of Syracuse) and Jim Harrick (of UCLA) aren't 'good' coaches because they lost. That's what's wrong with our profession."

After reading Elliott Teaford's article on Jim Boeheim ["Boeheim Is Even, Not Equal," Jan. 11], I recoiled in disgust about the venom with which the reporter attacked the Syracuse basketball coach. Why? Because Boeheim had the audacity to pass beloved coach John Wooden on the all-time NCAA wins list. Coach Wooden, I'm sure, would be first in line to congratulate Coach Boeheim. Though a certain Hall of Famer, Boeheim may be the most underrated coach in history. He may look frumpy, but he wins 75% of his games.

A broken forearm cost Galaxy goalkeeper Donovan Ricketts several starts this season. And now it has cost him his job with the Galaxy, as the team traded the Jamaican international player to the expansion Montreal Impact on Monday in exchange for allocation money. Major League Soccer's keeper of the year in 2010 and a two-time MLS All-Star, Ricketts, 34, was limited to 15 games this season, missing two months after breaking his arm against San Jose in late June. Josh Saunders stepped in and played well enough to make Ricketts expendable, notching eight shutouts in 18 starts and posting a 0.93 goals-against average.

Jim Boeheim breathed a sigh of relief when it was over. With the season winding down, he didn't need anything hanging over his head. Hakim Warrick scored a career-high 36 points in his final home game and Boeheim got his 700th win when No. 15 Syracuse overwhelmed Providence in the second half for a 91-66 Big East Conference victory Saturday. "This week has been tough for everybody just to get through," said Boeheim, the sixth active coach to reach 700 wins and the 18th overall.

Syracuse men's basketball Coach Jim Boeheim was probably already in a bad mood after his sixth-ranked team lost to Connecticut, 66-58, Wednesday night. But he got into an even worse mood at the post-game news conference when he was asked a question by ESPN reporter Andy Katz. Katz asked a question about the end of the rivalry between Syracuse and UConn when Boeheim let him have it. "I'll answer anybody's question but yours because you're an idiot and a disloyal person," Boeheim said.

Jim Boeheim spun slowly in his office chair and reached for the phone as a heavy, wet snow blanketed the ground outside on a blustery mid-April morning. That snub by the NCAA tournament selection committee, which deprived his Syracuse Orange from taking part in all that March madness, still gnawed at his psyche. But there was something much more important on his mind this day, as is often the case when he's not coaching basketball.

Syracuse Coach Jim Boeheim was asked how it felt to be a "good coach" again after getting his team into the West Regional finals today against Kansas. "Who said I am?" Boeheim replied. It wasn't the only question Boeheim answered with a question of his own. Asked if Syracuse could play an up-tempo game with Kansas, Boeheim replied: "Why don't you ask Georgetown that question?" Syracuse beat Georgetown, 85-64, the last time the teams met.

The headline on a Syracuse, N.Y., newspaper's website Saturday morning was enough to make anyone with a sense of college basketball history recoil in disgust: "Move over, Wiz." You see, Syracuse Coach Jim Boeheim needed a victory against Boston College to tie John Wooden with 664 victories, sharing 19th place on the all-time list, and got it when the No. 17-ranked Orangemen routed the unranked Eagles, 96-73, in the Carrier Dome.
