Jimmy Boeheim joining family at Syracuse


Jimmy Boeheim is transferri­ng to Syracuse to play for his father and with his younger brother, Buddy Boeheim, after three seasons at Cornell.

Coach Jim Boeheim’s oldest son made the announceme­nt Friday on Instagram.

Jimmy Boeheim placed his name in the NCAA transfer portal in November after the Ivy League announced that it was canceling its basketball season. The 6-foot-8 Boeheim averaged a team-high 16.7 points and 5.6 rebounds in 21 games in his junior season in 2019-20.

♦ Forward Theo John announced he’s transferri­ng from Marquette to Duke, yet another player to leave the Golden Eagles. John posted on Twitter that after conferring with his family he will spend his final year of eligibilit­y with the Blue Devils. The 6-foot-9 John averaged 8 points, 5 rebounds and 1.5 blocks this past season.

His 191 career blocks rank second in Marquette history. He has made 91 starts over the last three seasons.
