You can read his full statement below.

Another minute passes in the world of college sports, and we have more bad coronavirus news to share. Boeheim is the latest major figure in the world of sports to test positive.

Luckily, it sounds like he’s doing just fine, which is obviously the best case scenario. The last thing he needs is him showing major symptoms at the age of 75.

Hopefully, the Syracuse basketball coach stays home for a few days, gets better, gets some rest and is back with the team sooner than later.

He’s one of the best coaches in all of basketball, and we damn sure don’t need him sidelined for too long.

Let’s all keep our fingers crossed that he’s back with the Orange in a few days.
