Boeheim and Pitino had a "friendly" exchange

Tyler Lydon, a 6-foot-9, 190-pound small forward from New Hampton (N.H.), verbally committed to Syracuse Thursday night. A native of Pine Plains, N.Y., Lydon is ranked No. 77 in the Class of 2015 by Rivals. He chose the Orange over Boston College, Florida, Wake Forest, Iowa, Minnesota and Vanderbilt. Jim Hart, Lydon’s coach with the Albany City Rocks, also coached Syracuse sophomore big man DaJuan Coleman. “Tyler Lydon is a rare blend of height, skill, athleticism and toughness,” Hart told SNY.tv. “At 6-9 he gets off the floor quickly and plays well above the rim. He has excellent range and rhythm in his jump shot that stretches beyond the 3-point line.
