Onondaga County Exec. encourages fans to wear 1,000th win shirts to Monday's SU game

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) - While the NCAA would disagree, Onondaga County Joanie Mahoney says that Syracuse Coach Jim Boeheim has 1,000 wins.

When the Orange return to the Carrier Dome Monday night, she wants fans to be wearing a special "1000 Wins" T-Shirt.

Mahoney admits any kind of celebration has been awkward, since Syracuse University isn't allowed to officiallymark the milestone after the NCAA sanctions.

The men’s basketball coach reached the milestone at the Dome in a game against Virginia on Feb. 4.

The shirts are available online here, and are also available at the following locations: 

Galaxy Communications
235 Walton Street
Syracuse, NY  13202

Limp Lizard                                                        
4628 Onondaga Blvd                       
Syracuse, NY  13219                        

Metro Fitness
6800 E. Genesee Street
Fayetteville, NY  13066                                                        

Metro Fitness
205 South Salina St
Syracuse, NY 13202

One shirt reads  "Our City. Our Rules. 1000. #realboeheimwins." The other reads “Celebrate Like It's 1000 #realboeheim wins."

The messages address a ruling by the NCAA, vacating 101 of Boeheim's wins based on their belief that the games included a player who had broken NCAA rules.
