The Best of WAER Sports Podcast- The Jim Boeheim Connection

BestofSports_Grey.jpg

It's hard to be part of a major university for over 30 years and not make a slew of connection along the way. This week on The Best of WAER Sports Podcast the subject of both our stories have strong connections to Syracuse basketball coach Jim Boeheim. First up is Mike Hopkins, who is now the head coach for the University of Washington.  WAER's Noah Eagle explains how even after his departure he's still impacting Syracuse hoops.

And then, there's almost no stronger connection one can have than that of  a blood relative. So  it's safe to say, Syracuse freshman Buddy Boeheim knows the coach pretty well. That being said, Buddy is a freshman and has had his share of ups and downs. WAER's JD Raucci tells us how the freshman has grown throughout the season.
