Top basketball prospect Dajuan Coleman plans to take his time to decide on a college |
Just a junior, Coleman said Tuesday he would not commit to a college until mid-way through his senior season. He plans to take all five of his college visits. And he said he has not narrowed his search. Syracuse and Kentucky are in the mix. But so are other schools, he said.

Poliquin: Will Paul Pasqualoni have success as football coach of the Connecticut Huskies? |
Climbing out of that football abyss -- and a 30-65 record over the preceding 95 games made for a football abyss -- was worthy of all the huzzahs accorded Doug Marrone and his Syracuse University football program. But that 8-5 record in 2010, which included four wins by a total of 14 points, may have been as much a commentary on Akron, Maine, Colgate, a diminished Big East Conference and a horrible official’s call in the Pinstripe Bowl as it was on the Orange’s skill set. The point is, if SU can go 8-5 next season (and a trip to Southern California does loom on Sept. 17), it will have to be considered an improvement over last season.

Syracuse University lacrosse team helped offset horrendous game at faceoff X with fierce rides |
"When they’re getting the ball back like they were off the faceoffs," SU coach John Desko said, "to turn around and ride them and keep the ball in our offensive end of the field, that helps us. That helps our cause. We work on riding quite a bit, and it paid off at times today."

Kentucky, UNC Top Our NCAA Basketball Rankings For Next Season -
4. Syracuse - The Orange return all but Rick Jackson from a squad that underwhelmed in Big East and NCAA Tournament play, and add studs Rakeem Christmas and Michael Carter-Williams in recruiting. That's a potent roster even if Kris Joseph and Brandon Triche remain the team's two most efficient players; if Fab Melo and Baye Moussa Keita develop as much as they can over the summer, the Orange could be the Big East favorites come fall. And though Syracuse fans have a love/hate relationship with Scoop Jardine at this point, if he can figure out how to cut down on turnovers and poor shots, he could become the nation's finest point guard. That would make Troy Nunes Is An Absolute Magician fairly happy, I think.

Canadian Lacrosse Star Cementing Legacy at Syracuse -
For Keogh, 24, there's a more important number than the 117 goals he's tallied as an Orangeman since enrolling as a freshman in 2008. While he acknowledges the feat, 117 and counting is of far less importance if he's able to capture number three. And if both can happen, great, but he's not one to take credit for his accomplishments.
