Onuaku out vs. Gonzaga

---Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim was short and to the point about injured senior center Arinze Onuaku.

"He hasn't practiced," he said. "I've never played anyone who hasn't practiced."

So Onuaku, who is recovering from a right quad injury suffered in the Orange's Big East Tournament loss to Georgetown, is out for Sunday's game NCAA Tournament second round game against Gonzaga. Sophomore Kris Joseph is expected to start at power forward and Rick Jackson moves into the middle.

DaShonte Riley is also expected to recieve extended minutes against a Gonzaga team that has four players 6-foot-9 or taller.

Speaking of Riley, the 6-11 freshman has a twin sister who is 5-6.

"I'm glad I got all the height,'' he said, smiling.
