A tough season just got worse for the Syracuse Orange

The NCAA just announced new penalties on the Syracuse athletic program, most of which are affecting the basketball program.

The NCAA penalties include: Coach Boeheim being suspended nine ACC games, loss of 12 scholarships over the next four years, and a 5 year probation. 

The NCAA is also forcing the Orange to vacate victories from the 2004-2007 and 2010-2012 seasons, setting Boeheim further back from the 1k victory mark.
