Syracuse center Coleman sidelined with knee injury

Syracuse center DaJuan Coleman is expected to be sidelined for at least a month because of a knee injury that will require surgery.

Coleman started each of the first 20 games this season, but has averaged just 14 minutes of action. He is averaging 5.0 points and 4.4 rebounds.

The 6-foot-9 freshman hurt his knee in practice last week and played just seven minutes in Saturday's overtime loss to Villanova.
