Booking-Jim-BoeheimMonday was a big night for Syracuse Basketball Head Coach Jim Boeheim as he reached the 900th career victory milestone. Many coaches would take this time to celebrate, thank their players, thank their college, and possibly their family, but coach Jim Boeheim took this time to speak about terrible tragedy that occurred in Connecticut.

Coach Jim Boeheim reflected on the two 6-year-old boys who were buried Monday, victims along with 18 other children and six adults in a shooting massacre last week at an elementary school in Connecticut. Boehiem delivered this special message:

“If we cannot get the people who represent us to do something about firearms, we are a sad, sad society,” Boeheim said Monday night. “If one person in this world, the NRA president, anybody, can tell me why we need assault weapons with 30 shots – this is our fault if we don’t go out there and do something about this. If we can’t get this thing done, I don’t know what kind of country we have.”

 Coach Jim Boeheim message was definitely heard and felt as the crowd recognized him for taking the time to show respect to those lost at the tragedy.  The victory by the third-ranked Orange made Boeheim just the third Division I men’s coach to reach 900 wins.
