SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) Jim Boeheim will coach Syracuse against top-ranked Duke on Saturday night in his team's first game since the 74-year-old Basketball Hall of Famer struck and killed a pedestrian on a dark highway.

Syracuse athletic director John Wildhack said in a news release Friday that Boeheim would resume his coaching duties at the Carrier Dome three days after the crash.

The accident happened on Interstate 690 in Syracuse on Wednesday night after the Orange beat No. 18 Louisville. Police say 51-year-old Jorge Jimenez was a passenger in a car that apparently skidded out of control on a patch of ice and hit a guardrail.
