What a way to end the Syracuse-UConn regular-season Big East series. Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim had some choice words for ESPN college basketball reporter Andy Katz following the Orange's loss to the Huskies on Wednesday night. 

The longtime Syracuse coach called Katz an "idiot" and a "disloyal person". The apparent feud is reportedly based on a report Katz gave on the academic status of Syracuse forward James Southerland.
