King Of Kings Update: DaJuan Coleman vs. Rakeem Christmas, SU Recruit In The Mix

Have You Seen This MC-Dubz?

Donna Ditota is all over the King of Kings League this year. With so many Syracuse Orange players and recruits involved, it only makes sense. She checks in with a couple updates on the action.

(And why any of you schlubs who live in the Utica area aren't going to these games, I do not know...)

First up, the war between Rakeem Christmas and DaJuan Coleman commences. Round one goes to Coleman.

Coleman, the Jamesville-DeWitt High School product, manned the middle for JD’s Finest. Christmas, the SU sophomore, played center for Utica Select.

JD’s Finest cruised to an easy 79-51 victory, though Utica Select was without James Southerland, said to be home in downstate New York on Monday.

It was a rebound-fest for both, with 21 boards grabbed between the two of them.

Meanwhile, Christmas may be doing some solid recruiting on SU's behalf. Highly-coveted recruit Isaiah Briscoe is playing for Utica Select thanks to Rak. Considering the team includes Southerland and he spent Monday night playfully-jawing with Michael Carter-Williams, this recruit is clearly in good hands.

He told Donna that he has a list of about six schools and Syracuse is one of them. In May, Briscoe told Nation of Orange that while he wasn't a Syracuse "lean," they were among the schools recruiting him the hardest. He also visited SU on Monday.
