After missing six games due to an eligibility issue, Syracuse senior James Southerland will be available to play Sunday vs. St. John’s, the Post Standard is reporting. The report was widely circulated, but has since been taken down.
Roger Rubin of the New York Daily News has also cited sources and reported that Southerland is likely to play Sunday.
According to the report from the Post Standard, Southerland’s appeal was upheld and his eligibility restored. Syracuse will welcome him back, along with his 13.6 points and 5.2 rebounds per game. Without Southerland in the lineup, Syracuse was 4-2 with back-to-back losses to Villanova and Pittsburgh. His presence as likely the team’s best three-point shooter will be a major asset against St. John’s matchup zone.
With a win Sunday, Syracuse would pull into a tie with Marquette atop the Big East.
