NEW YORK (AP) — Syracuse star Buddy Boeheim appeared to punch Florida State's Wyatt Wilkes in the stomach during the first half of the Orange's second-round game in the Atlantic Coast Conference Tournament.

Boeheim, the team's leading scorer, was not called for a foul after he appeared to swing his right hand into Wilkes' midsection as he turned to run back to the defensive end.

Wilkes doubled over and squatted for a moment after taking being struck about midway through the first half.

Syracuse led 49-26 at halftime. The winner faces top-seeded Duke in Thursday's quarterfinals.
