Send to KindlePer a release from the school, Syracuse sophomore center DaJuan Coleman will undergo season ending knee surgery. “This is a tremendous disappointment, especially considering the amount of hard work DaJuan has been putting in with our basketball team,” said head coach Jim Boeheim. “We will certainly miss his contributions.” Coleman was the starting center for the Orange before his injury.  However, Boeheim seemed frustrated at times with Coleman’s play and appeared to be on a short leash for the Hall of Fame coach.  Coleman appeared in only 13 games and averaged 4.3 points per game.  He missed chunks of last season with a meniscus issue and has seen the court sparingly over the last few Syracuse games, due to the injury. It remains to be seen how the loss of Coleman will affect the Orange.  They have played well without him but what he lacks in point production, he makes up for in size.  The Orange could use his 6’9” 280-pound frame to be a bruiser inside and they lose their strongest offensive rebounder.  Depth is an issue now and with a potential for foul trouble for the current Orange center crew, Coleman’s absence may be more pronounced.
