By RALPH D. RUSSO, AP College Sports Writer

NEW YORK (AP) — Syracuse star Buddy Boeheim has been suspended for the Orange's Atlantic Coast Conference Tournament game against Duke after he punched Florida State's Wyatt Wilkes in the stomach Wednesday during a second-round 's victory.

Boeheim, the team's leading scorer, was not called for a foul after he swung 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 being struck about midway through the first half.
