Syracuse forward James Southerland won his appeal and is eligible to play, according to a report from the Post-Standard Sunday morning. He will be available to play when the Orange host St. John’s on Sunday afternoon at the Carrier Dome, according to the Post-Standard. The story was also confirmed by the New York Daily News and ESPN.
Southerland has missed his last six games due to an eligibility issue, which The Juice Online has confirmed to be related to academics. The Post-Standard reported that it was due to a term paper from the previous year. The Orange went 4-2 in Southerland’s absence, including a win on the road vs. No. 1 Louisville.
Southerland is SU’s second leading scorer at 13.6 ppg.
SU was 15-1 at the time of his suspension.
