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.

Undefeated Syracuse went into Pittsburgh on Wednesday night ranked No. 1 and unbeaten, but many believed they would lose. Tyler Ennis had other ideas. Ennis made a running 35-footer as time expired to give the Orange a 58-56 victory to improve to 24-0 this season. You can watch the shot in the video above. "I knew I didn't have that much time," Ennis said. "I just got it and tried to get down as fast as possible. That was the first open look I got. I knew I had to take it. I was watching the clock the whole way down the court.

USC 42, Syracuse 29 (final) Ryan Nassib finished off his big day by directing a 74-yard scoring drive and capping it with a one-yard dive for the touchdown in the final minute. But it wouldn't be enough as the Trojans recovered the onside kick and ran out the clock. Matt Barkley completed 23 of 30 passes for 186 yards and six touchdowns for the second-ranked Trojans in a game that featured a 1 hour 10 minute weather delay. Barkley connected with Marqise Lee for three touchdowns, Robert Woods for two and tight end Xavier Grimble for another to tie his own school record for touchdown passes in a game.

Indiana 7-footer Cody Zeller and two point guards were among the latest standout underclassmen to make themselves available for the NBA draft. Joining Zeller were Syracuse's Michael Carter-Williams and Missouri's Phil Pressey. Zeller, a sophomore who led the Hoosiers in scoring (16.5 points) and rebounding (8.1), was a second-team All-American and is projected to be a top-10 pick in the June draft. He is the second Hoosiers star to leave school early. On Tuesday, junior swingman Victor Oladipo announced he, too, was declaring for the NBA draft.

Stephen Thompson of Crenshaw, the City scoring champion last season with a 28.2 average, signed a letter of intent Tuesday night to play basketball next season for Syracuse, the second major guard the Orangemen have successfully recruited out of Los Angeles this month. "It had been one of my favorite schools for a long time," said Thompson, who also had Duke and Louisville under final consideration. "When I visited the school, I liked it a lot. I thought I could fit in there.

Michael Adams, fouled near midcourt, hit two free throws with one second left to lift Boston College to a 67-66 Big East upset at Boston Tuesday night, but Coach Jim Boeheim of Syracuse said the foul shouldn't have been called. "Players are supposed to decide the games, not the referees," said Boeheim, whose team is ranked sixth by Associated Press and eighth by United Press International.

Say, that is some streak Syracuse is on. The week started in upstate New York with talk of where to hold the postseason snowball fight after the Orangeman raced to a school-record 19-0 start and No. 4 national ranking. You would have thought Syracuse could have picked the final score for Sunday's Carrier Dome game against UCLA, the wayward Westwooders. Coach Jim Boeheim tried to calm the masses.

No. 21 New England Patriots: DE Chandler Jones, Syracuse - - Jones believes his biggest career strides were made during the off-season before his final year when he participated in mixed-martial-arts workouts with his brother, Ultimate Fighting Championship star Jon “Bones” Jones. Comment: With Mark Anderson now in Buffalo, the Patriots badly needed to beef up their pass rush. Jones is very versatile.

ATLANTA -- This one, Michigan fans, is on the books. Two decades after the famed Fab Five led the Wolverines to two NCAA tournament championship games that were later vacated, another group of fabulous young players has Michigan back in the title game after a 61-56 victory over fellow No. 4 seed Syracuse on Saturday night. Michigan Coach John Beilein made the most of his first Final Four game in a career that has spanned every level of college basketball, climbing from junior colleges to Division III to Division II to Division I to the chance to become the best team in the nation.

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.

ATLANTA -- This Final Four will be "lights out" on the scoreboard only if there's a second-half power outage at the Georgia Dome. (Hey, it already happened at one football stadium this year.) Saturday's two games in a vacuous, 75,000-seat venue have the potential to rekindle memories of the 1940 NCAA tournament. The semifinal scores that year were 39-30 and 43-42. Wichita State is playing Louisville in Saturday's first semifinal; Syracuse and Michigan in the nightcap. What jumps out about these matchups is not the jump shooters.

Seeded teams 1 INDIANA: The Hoosiers' six losses came against NCAA tournament teams. Their mix of high-scoring offense and ugh defense cinched a top-four seeding despite a Big Ten semifinal loss. 2 MIAMI: Experience and a strong backcourt led the 'Canes to their first Atlantic Coast Conference regular-season and tournament titles. And they have a clear path to a regional final. 3 MARQUETTE: The Golden Eagles represent a tough matchup along the front line. Forward Jamil Wilson has come on as a scorer and rebounder at the end of the season.

— Out of the spitting rain and misty gloom he skipped, from the field into the tunnel toward the locker room, this tough USC football player singing like a child. "It's over!" shrieked Marqise Lee. "We get to go home! It's over!" The relief dripped off him like the water stains that darkened his gold pants. The thrill of escape glowed like the studs in his ears. The Trojans did not fall Saturday, but they stumbled. They were filled with drama, but lacked energy. They were occasionally brilliant, but often blah.

USC came to the East Coast to beat Syracuse, make an impression and show why quarterback Matt Barkley was deserving of Heisman Trophy front-runner status. Barkley passed for six touchdowns as the second-ranked Trojans won, 42-29, Saturday at MetLife Stadium in a game that featured a 1 hour 10 minute weather delay and a fourth-quarter margin that was closer than most anticipated. Barkley connected with Marqise Lee for three touchdowns, Robert Woods for two and tight end Xavier Grimble for another to tie his own school record for touchdown passes in a game.

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.

Syracuse's Doug Marrone became the second coach scooped up by an NFL team Monday, hired by the Buffalo Bills. The move leaves five teams still searching for replacements for coaches who were fired a week ago - the day after the regular season ended. Marrone arrives in Buffalo after three seasons as the coach at Syracuse. The 48-year-old New Yorker takes over for Chan Gailey , who was fired after three losing seasons. Marrone helped restore the Orange to bowl status but has a tougher job with the Bills - ending a 13-year postseason drought.
