Big men centers of attention as No. 25 Syracuse faces Old Dominion

Syracuse might not have a big problem against Old Dominion this Saturday in the Carrier Dome, but as the Orange move forward with their season, their long-term task is a tall one, in multiple senses of the term.

More than once over the past five weeks, Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim felt the need to pull starting center Paschal Chukwu from the floor in the first three minutes of a game. Boeheim is not fully comfortable with Chukwu and fellow big man Bourama Sidibe.

It is generally acknowledged that No. 25 Syracuse gains more at the offensive end of the floor when Marek Dolezaj plays center. Dolezaj passes the ball well and creates a more integrated offensive unit. He was a key cog in last March's run to the Sweet 16. He is a versatile and useful player in the right situations. However, he is not physically sturdy, as Boeheim explained after his team's 72-71 win over Georgetown last Saturday.
