Jacket Toss Inception was just the beginning

NCAA Basketball: ACC Conference Tournament-Pittsburgh vs Syracuse Jeremy Brevard-USA TODAY Sports

The latest update of the official Jim Boeheim Jacket Toss Tracker™ hits the runway with a winter debut of the latest and greatest.

First let’s get to the details. Boeheim’s jacket was tossed after Mamadi Diakite hit a long jumper in overtime to cut the Syracuse Orange lead to 54-49. With that we had our first overtime jacket toss and at the end of the next Syracuse possession Buddy Boeheim hit this shot.

You might think Buddy got a lucky blazer of a bounce on this heave but tossing the jacket has a power that we’ve been trying to get all of you to understand. Heim’s Hocus-Pocus Haberdashery is open on weekends.

James gave you the news of Jacket Toss Inception which is simply amazing but this now opens up an even better possible event. Imagine an important game in March with Jim Boeheim tossing his jacket lined with photos of Jim Boeheim tossing his jacket lined with photos of Jim Boeheim tossing his jacket. Greensboro prepare yourself!

The win over the Virginia Cavaliers brings Syracuse’s record in jacket toss games to 4-0 this season and 11-3 over the last two seasons. It also moves the Orange’s road record in jacket toss games to 2-0 over that same time period.
