Jim Boeheim was relieved of his head coaching duties a few hours after the Syracuse men’s basketball team suffered defeat at the hands of a Wake Forest buzzer-beater in the ACC Tournament. After the game, Boeheim gave vague and opaque answers to questions about his future leading the program, and shortly after, the university announced he was being replaced by Adrian Autry. The unceremonious exit for Boeheim after 47 years as head coach leaves us with more questions than answers. Kevin Durant was set to make his home debut for the Phoenix Suns when he slipped and fell during warmups prior to a game against the Oklahoma City Thunder. The Suns announced Durant would be a late scratch, sidelined with an ankle injury.
