first_img Published on February 11, 2018 at 12:54 pm Contact Matthew: mguti100@syr.edu | @MatthewGut21 Syracuse redshirt freshman forward Matthew Moyer has been ruled out for Sunday’s matchup against Wake Forest, SU Athletics announced about 30 minutes prior to the 1 p.m. start time. Moyer is wearing a protective boot on his left ankle and is not in uniform.Moyer, who started the first 20 games of the season for SU (16-8, 5-6 Atlantic Coast), did not start two weeks ago at Pittsburgh due to a left ankle sprain. He has not started SU’s last four games, as freshman Marek Dolezaj slotted into his place. Dolezaj averages 4.7 points and 5.2 rebounds per game.Over his last three games off the bench, Moyer has played 34 minutes and scored just two points. When asked last week about whether Dolezaj would continue to start, head coach Jim Boeheim did not waver.“Well let’s see,” Boeheim said. “Matt played 19 minutes (against Virginia). He has zero, zero, zero, 0-for-4, yeah. I’d say so.”With Moyer out and freshman forward Bourama Sidibe still battling tendinitis, former walk-on Braedon Bayer could see time. Boeheim has said Bayer will see the floor, but he played only one minute at Louisville on Monday.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textTip between the Orange and Demon Deacons (9-15, 2-10) is slated for 1 p.m. Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

You’re not looking for results, really. As long as you get your bunts down and things like that, that’s the most important thing.
