Photo: There Is An Amazing Rakeem Christmas Snowman, Complete With His Signature Beard, On The Syracuse Campus

Syracuse only has two games remaining this basketball season, but tonight's game at the Carrier Dome promises to be a special one. Center Rakeem Christmas will be honored as Syracuse's lone senior, capping a phenomenal season that saw him go from three year role player to one of the best post players in the nation. Christmas is also extremely popular due to his strong connection with the Syracuse community, and his general affability. 

To celebrate the game, someone built this fantastic Christmas snowman on the Syracuse campus. It features his signature scraggly beard, as well as a Santa Claus hat.
