Syracuse came up just short of pulling off a massive upset against Duke in the ACC Tournament on Thursday, and the result was an incredibly emotional one for the Boeheim family.

The Orange gave the Blue Devils all they could handle even without their best player. Buddy Boeheim was suspended for the game after he threw a cheap shot (video here) during Wednesday’s win over Florida State. He appeared to be fighting back tears as he was forced to watch the final game of his collegiate career from the stands.
