ATLANTA (AP) -- Quick quote: "Thrown a ball'

"I have thrown a ball but it's usually up in the stands and last time I did it, I hurt my arm, so I don't do it anymore. I literally could not watch that video."

-- Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim on former Rutgers coach Mike Rice, who was fired Wednesday after a video surfaced of him hitting, shoving, throwing basketballs at his players and berating them and with anti-gay slurs.
