On Thursday night, the Syracuse Orange took on the UConn Huskies in a match-up that never disappoints. No. 15 Syracuse entered the game as the favorite, but found itself trailing at the half.

Just over five minutes into the second half, the Huskies hold a 10-point advantage. Dan Hurley is in his first year as the team's head coach and it already looks like the university made the right hire.

The scoreboard isn't the only thing going wrong for the Orange tonight. Early in the game, Buddy Boeheim, the son of Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim jumped into the game.

When he did, everyone noticed something wrong with his jersey. Boeheim's jersey was missing the first "E" in his last name so it spelled out "Boheim."


It's not a great look when you spell a player's name wrong on his jersey, but it's even worse when that name is also the last name of the head coach.
