Buddy Boeheim to play basketball for dad Jim Boeheim

WSYR-TV - Buddy Boeheim has made it official -- he will continue his basketball career at Syracuse University playing for his father, Hall of Fame coach Jim Boeheim.

The younger Boeheim made the announcement in a tweet Friday, saying:

"This is all I ever wanted growing up. Thank you to everyone who made this possible. Go Orange!"

This decision comes as no surprise. In July, ESPN college basketball writer Jeff Goodman interviewed both Jim Boeheim and his younger son. They said the plan is for Buddy Boeheim to eventually come to Syracuse University and play basketball.

Buddy Boeheim was a star guard at Jamesville-DeWitt who helped lead the Red Rams to the New York State Final Four this past season. At the time, he told Goodman, "We're going to try and win it all together and end his career with a national championship."

Buddy Boeheim will play his senior year at Brewster Academy in New Hampshire, a prep school known for turning out big D-I prospects, such as Chris McCullough.
