Joseph sits out second half of Syracuse’s win

Senior Kris Joseph was limited in Syracuse’s 92-47 win over Colgate on Saturday after an injury to his knee, Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim said.

“Kris Joseph hurt his knee in practice,” Boeheim said. “He could’ve played the second half but it was sore, it was stiff, so we’re going to try to get him healthy for next week.”

The forward, who came into the game leading Syracuse in scoring at 16.7 points per game, played just 13 minutes and scored four points. He sat out the entire second half, and was replaced by CJ Fair in the lineup.

Both of Joseph’s knees have bothered him recently. Joseph had surgery in March after he had tendinitis in the knee. Earlier this season, Joseph was experiencing soreness in the other knee.
