Jim Boeheim and the Syracuse Orange advanced through their 2012 NCAA Tournament bracket and on to the Elite Eight with their victory over the Wisconsin Badgers on Thursday night. While that's obviously a huge accomplishment, let's take a look back what might have been.
Way back in the Spring of 2001, Boeheim and the Orange were recruiting a promising young recruit named Julius Hodge. Hodge looked like he was leaning toward becoming a Syracuse student, but changed his mind at the last minute and instead commited to becoming a member of the N.C. State Wolfpack.
On Thursday night, Hodge tweeted about said decision as he explained what might have swayed his commitment.
If Boeheim would have shown me his wife on my visit I may have committed LOL! Instead they had Laurie Fine around smh!— Julius Hodge (@Follow24Hodge) March 23, 2012
Let's ignore the Fine stuff just because, but for those that aren't aware, plenty of pictures of Boeheim's wife Juli are available on the Google machine. We have no further comment.
For more Julius Hodge, be sure to watch his appearance on the Bomani & Jones Show.
