Tonight's game at the Carrier Dome between Syracuse and Virginia is going to be all about senior center Rakeem Christmas. With the Orange ineligible for the post-season, Christmas' final home game is a major event in Central New York, and we bet there will be plenty of tributes to Syracuse's lone senior. We've already shared this spectacular snowman on the Syracuse campus, now Christmas' teammate and longtime friend Trevor Cooney is paying homage to the center in the Dome during warm-ups.

Based on Matt Park's tweet, the rest of the team may also be wearing these for warm-ups. This is a very cool tribute to a player who has meant everything to his team during what has been a very trying season for the Orange.
