Syracuse seniors Dajuan Coleman, Tyler Roberson to attend ACC Media Day

Typically, the vets attend these things, so totally makes sense.

ACC Media Day is tomorrow for all 15 men’s basketball teams in the conference. Every coach will be in attendance, as will select players from each roster.

For the Syracuse Orange, those players are seniors Dajuan Coleman and Tyler Roberson.

Typically, media day attendance is reserved for veterans, especially in the case of Jim Boeheim’s squad. There are five scholarship seniors on the roster, but Coleman and Roberson were the only ones to be on scholarship at SU last year as well. John Gillon and Andrew White III are both graduate transfers, while Doyin Akintobi-Adeyeye was a walk-on.

During last year’s campaign that ultimately ended in the Final Four, Roberson averaged 8.8 points per game, and 8.5 rebounds per. Coleman had 4.9 points per game and 4.7 rebounds. They’ll be joined by Paschal Chuwkwu and occasionally Tyler Lydon in the front court this year.
