Coach Boeheim and his team grab the NCAA trophy in 2003.

Hall of Fame coach Jim Boeheim ’66, G’73 has had a remarkable 37-year run as head coach at his alma mater, Syracuse University. Under his leadership, SU has made 27 trips to the NCAA tournament, including Final Four appearances in 1987, 1996 and 2003, and the biggest prize of all, the NCAA championship in 2003. He became just the third Division I head coach to record 900 career victories when Syracuse hosted the University of Detroit on December 17, 2012, in the Carrier Dome.
