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

From news services UCLA faced its share of spread offenses this season – Washington, Utah and Washington State – and the next in line comes today at Arizona, under the direction of first-year offensive coordinator Sonny Dykes. Bruins cornerback Alterraun Verner said the Wildcats compare best with Utah, which used plenty of misdirection. The Wildcats, led by junior quarterback Willie Tiutama, have attempted 405 passes, 59 more than any other Pacific-10 team, in nine games.

They have Willie primarily in the (shot) gun most of the offensive sets, and they spread you out. He’s a very good quarterback with an excellent arm.” Tiutama leads the Pac-10 in passing yards per game (311.6), and receiver Mike Thompson has league highs of 63 catches and nine touchdown receptions. But the Wildcats are last in the league in rushing (77 ypg) and rushing attempts (237). “They spread it out and chuck it all over the place,” UCLA linebacker Christian Taylor said. “They run about 30 percent of the time.” Of course, Washington State spent the first half of the season with a throw-first mentality, but ran for 274 yards in beating the Bruins last week. “From what happened last week when we tried to take away the pass,” Taylor said, “I’m sure (Arizona) is going to try and run the ball on us.” last_img read more
