Syracuse Basketball: Syracuse "Throwback Thursday" Photo Features Bespectacled Jim Boeheim Playing For Orange

Syracuse basketball got into the weekly social media tradition of "Throwback Thursday" on Instagram this afternoon. The program posted a black-and-white photo of a Syracuse game from the 1960's, and one of the Orange players looks very familiar. 

The man shooting is Dave Bing, who went on to have a legendary NBA career. The bespectacled young man bracing himself for a possible rebound? Well that's Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim of course. 

Boeheim's glasses look like they have barely changed over the years. We doubt he'd still wear those shorts though.
