Welcome to The Show! On Thursday, we'll have a special chat guest as we celebrate Jimmy V Week here at ESPN, when Syracuse men's basketball coach Jim Boeheim stops by.

In the 15 years since The V Foundation for Cancer Research was founded by ESPN and Jim Valvano, the foundation has raised more than $80 million. The organization has also awarded cancer research grants in 38 states and the District of Columbia. The V Foundation started with the dream of Valvano, the passionate and committed former NC State basketball coach and award-winning broadcaster, as he battled cancer. For more information, or to donate to the V Foundation, call 1-800-4-JimmyV or go here. Every cent of every donation goes directly to cancer research. To see a list of games on ESPN in support of Jimmy V Week, go here.


Boeheim has won five Big East Tournament titles.
In his 33rd season at Syracuse, Boeheim entered this year with a career record of 771-278. Boeheim fought his own battle with prostate cancer earlier this decade and has been active with the "Coaches vs. Cancer" early season basketball tournament for years.

Boeheim has a national title under his belt, as well as five Big East Tournament and seven Big East regular season titles. He has been to the Final Four three times, the Sweet 16 13 times and the NCAA Tournametn 25 times. He has won the Big East coach of the year award three times in his career. He was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 2005, the same season that he, along with Connecticut coach Jim Calhoun, was recognized as a "Spirit of Jimmy V" honoree.

Send your questions now and join Boeheim Thursday at 2 p.m. ET!
