Syracuse and Duke played another intense game Saturday night, with the Blue Devils narrowly defeating Syracuse at home. With just over 10 seconds remaining and Syracuse down by two, Rodney Hood drew an offensive foul from C.J. Fair.

Enraged by the call, Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim stormed the court, ripped off his jacket and screamed at the officials. As a result, he received two technical fouls and was ejected from the game. Boeheim was escorted out by police officers.

The call essentially sealed Syracuse’s loss, as Duke guard Quinn Cook hit three of the four ensuing free throws that ultimately won the game for the Blue Devils, 66-60.

In a post game interview, Boeheim said he will not regret arguing the call, and that it was “the worst call of the year,” according to Nicole Auerbach of USA Today Sports.
