When top-ranked Duke comes to town on Saturday evening for a rematch against the Orange, Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim will be dealing with many emotions. It will be the team's first game since he struck and killed a pedestrian on a dark highway after guiding the Orange to a victory over No. 18 Louisville on Wednesday night.
Doubts about whether Boeheim would make the game were dispelled Friday by Syracuse athletic director John Wildhack.
The accident happened on Interstate 690 in Syracuse. Police say Jorge Jimenez was a passenger in a car that hit a guardrail and was trying to get to safety when he was struck by Boeheim's SUV.
Big Ten men
No. 21 Iowa 76, Indiana 7: Jordan Bohannon hit three three-pointers in overtime, including one with 20.2 seconds left, and the Hawkeyes rallied to win at home.
It was the fifth win in six games for Iowa (21-6, 10-6 Big Ten). Tyler Cook scored 18 points for the Hawkeyes. Bohannon added 17, all in the second half and overtime. Indiana (13-14, 4-12) has lost 12 of 13.
Also, Iowa play-by-play announcer Gary Dolphin was suspended for the rest of the season for referring to Maryland's Bruno Fernando as "King Kong" during a game this week. Hawkeye Sports Properties announced the move before Friday's game.
In describing the game's closing moments, when Fernando scored the winning basket, Dolphin said Fernando, who was born in Angola and is black, "was King Kong at the end of the game."
