Coleman last saw action (playing three minutes) against Virginia Tech on January 7th, but he was starting at center for the Orange for the majority of the team’s non-conference schedule. He was averaging 4.3 points per game and 4.2 rebounds per game.
While Coleman is not considered one of SU’s key players, the injury will affect the team’s depth moving forward.
