Photo: Syracuse Assistant Mike Hopkins Tweets That Baye Keita Will Suit Up For Tonight's BC Game

Syracuse may be undefeated, but they've had a few very close calls as of late, and depth has been a major issue. Luckily, it looks like the team has some good news heading into tonight's game against Boston College. Assistant coach Mike Hopkins tweeted that center Baye Keita will be suited up tonight, and will presumably be available to back-up Rakeem Christmas against the Eagles.

A few hours earlier, Hopkins took the time to complement Keita's work ethic.

Keita has missed Syracuse's last two games, forcing Christmas to play 35 minutes in each of those close contests.
