This season, Buddy, Boeheim's youngest son will be on the Syracuse Basketball team. Buddy played at Jamesville-DeWitt High School where he was named the 2017 CNY Player of the Year and then finished his last year of high school at Brewster Academy in Wolfeboro, N.H.
He will wear the same No. 35 for Syracuse. The same number Boeheim wore as a player at Syracuse.
Jim Boeheim insists his son being on the team will not affect his coaching at all. He says ""He's a guy on the team. If he can help us, he's going to play. If he can't, that's it. I'm not going to really get into it any more than that. He'll play when I think he can help our team. It wouldn't be fair any other way."
