  • ALEXANDRIA, Va. — Kyle Washington has not one, but two decisions to make.

    A 6-foot-9, 215-pound power forward from Champlin, Minn., Washington will choose a new high school this fall and also focus in on his upcoming college decision.

    After spending last season at the Hotchkiss (Conn.) School, Washington will attend another prep school for 2012-13.

    “I’m still trying to figure it out,” Washington said at the Nike Global Challenge. “I’m talking to places like South Kent and Hargrave…It will be a prep school.”

    On his way out of the Big East, Jim Boeheim reiterated his parting shot.

    With Syracuse now officially headed to the ACC in 2013, Boeheim said the league he first joined in 1979 with Dave Gavitt as Commissioner is not the same league in which his Orange currently play.

    “The Big East is not what it used to be,” Boeheim told the Syracuse Post-Standard after the U.S. club’s 80-69 exhibition victory over Brazil on Monday night in Washington.

    “I think the ACC is a tremendous league and it’s a tremendous opportunity for us. To stay in one time zone and play in a great conference — a great all-around conference, but, specifically, a great basketball conference — is a great thing.”
