Wayne Selden, a small forward recruit for the Class of 2013, narrowed his list of possible schools over the weekend, and the Syracuse Orange basketball program made his final list of six. Selden, who's ranked the No. 21-best prospect by Rivals and No. 4-best small forward by Scout, also included Ohio State, Florida, UCLA, Missouri and Kansas in his top six, and eliminated Kentucky and North Carolina.

Here's a brief scouting report on Selden, who plays prep hoops at the Tilton School in New Hampshire:

When on the court, the wing guard is always in attack mode, earning trips to the foul line and going right after some of the tougher defenders and shot blockers on the opposition.

Selden has spent his summer months and AAU seasons running with the Boston-based program, BABC, a group that has had tremendous national success in its tenure.

If Selden commits to SU, the Orange would quickly leap to the top of the recruiting totem poll for 2013. Just last week, Syracuse earned a verbal commitment from Tyler Ennis, a five-star point guard from Newark, NJ.

The Syracuse Orange men's basketball program's 2012-13 non-conference schedule got a bit harder this week, as Long Beach St., a NCAA Tournament team last season, was added. The news came from a press release from the 49ers' athletic website, which slated the contest as a home game for the Orange on Dec. 6.

For Syracuse, this will be the first non-conference home game as it will play the San Diego St. Aztecs (Nov. 9) and the Temple Owls (Dec. 12) on neutral courts and the Arkansas Razorbacks on the road.

Here's a quick composite look at the Orange's non-conference schedule:

Nov. 9: at San Diego St. Aztecs (Battle of the Midway -- on the aircraft carrier USS Midway).
Nov. 30: at Arkansas Razorbacks (SEC-Big East Challenge)
Dec. 6: vs. Long Beach St. 49ers
Dec. 12: vs. Temple Owls (Gotham Classic at Madison Square Garden)

Despite no official word coming from the Syracuse University athletic department or the Big East Conference, it seems the Orange's men's basketball contest, Nov. 30th, against the Arkansas Razorback in the Big East-SEC Challenge is official and will not be canceled, confirmed Big East officials Tuesday.

According to ESPN.com's Andy Katz, talks between SU athletic director Daryl Gross and the conference have "nothing to do" with the Syracuse vs. Arkansas match-up.

Big East associate commissioner Tom Odjakjian wouldn’t divulge what would be available to negotiate, but was adamant that the matchups are set.

On Friday, the Big East and SEC released its schedule for 2012 Big East-SEC Challenge, however, they came under fire from Gross, who e-mailed league athletic directors, coaches and other colleagues Thursday. In the leaked e-mail, Gross expressed his disapproval about the match-up and the Orange couldn't participate because of a "very difficult scheduling predicament."

Later in the afternoon Friday, Gross said in a statement that he talked with Big East interim commissioner Joe Bailey and the issue would hopefully be resolved shortly.

With the addition of Arkansas to the regular-seasons schedule, college basketball experts and fans who harp on Syracuse basketball head coach Jim Boeheim for not playing non-conference games out of the state of New York will have little ammo in 2012-13.

Currently, the Orange's schedule features an unofficial season-opener in San Diego, Calif. on top of an aircraft carrier against the San Diego St. Aztecs (Nov. 9), a tough road game at Arkansas (Nov. 30) and a match-up with the Temple Owls (Dec. 12) at Madison Square Garden.

News breaks fast in the social media age, and Friday the Syracuse Orange basketball program was in the middle of a confusing, yet, interesting set of circumstances, revolving around its 2012-13 schedule, which now seems to be quickly resolving.

Surrounding Friday's release of the 2012 Big East-SEC Challenge, which pitted the Orange against the Arkansas Razorbacks on Nov. 29, ESPN.com's Andy Katz released a leaked Thursday night e-mail from Syracuse University Athletic Director Daryl Gross to Big East colleagues which stated SU didn't want to participate in the second-year made-for-ESPN event.

The night before Friday's release of the pairings for the 12-game challenge, which listed Syracuse playing at Arkansas, Syracuse athletic director Daryl Gross wrote in an email to Big East colleagues that the Orange are "overcommitted and can't play at this point."

However, a new statement from Gross was released Friday afternoon by local Syracuse sport talk radio show host Brent Axe, who "spoke" to the Gross via text messaging:

"Communication has been poor until today where Joe Bailey (interim Big East Commish) and I have had some constructive discussion and trying to work out a solution," Gross texted Axe. "Hopefully, we will have things worked out by this afternoon."

It now seems the issue is close to being resolved and Syracuse will play Arkansas, per the original agreement which committed the Orange to play a road game in challenge.

After ESPN's story, a Big East representative said, "We have agreements in place. We have no reason to believe otherwise.''

The Big East official said conversations took place on Friday morning between Gross and Big East interim commissioner Joe Bailey. Gross confirmed those discussions.

Before that, Gross was on the offensive Thursday night and he was clearly upset with the Big East, a conference the Orange are expected to leave after the 2012-13 season for the ACC.

"I wish we could have agreement as you have put us all in what could be an embarrassing situation," said Gross in the e-mail on Thursday night. "We are not confirmed. I find it amazing that there is no discussion to make a better plan. We have been collegial with the Big East yet it appears that there is no willingness to cooperate."

Gross cited that the Orange, who are already scheduled to play San Diego St., Nov. 9, on top of an aircraft carrier in San Diego and Temple, Dec. 12, in Madison Square Garden, but not play in any preseason tournaments, have a "very difficult scheduling predicament."

Initially, the match-up between the Orange and Razorbacks was a bit of a disappointment for some Syracuse hoops fans, who were hoping the Orange would be pitted against the defending National Champions, the Kentucky Wildcats -- a pairing that couldn't happen because both programs a schedule for road games in the now yearly event.

However, this new distraction between Gross and the Big East clearly ended any discussion of what could have been between the Orange and Wildcats.

Syracuse basketball head coach Jim Boeheim maybe moving up the ladder when it comes to be among the greatest all-time college hoops coaches, but no one would know it by looking at his salary.

In a report release by the Syracuse Post Standard Sunday, Boehiem, who's an alumnus of the university and will be entering his 37 season as head coach, made approximately $1.9 million in 2010, which was a 33-percent raise from the previous season. That number, however, is low considering Boeheim's status among his colleagues, who make much more than he does.

According to the numbers, Boeheim, who this season surpassed legends Adolph Rupp and Dean Smith on the all-time, Division I wins list for fourth and third place, makes less money than 10-15 other head coaches that made the '10-11 NCAA Tournament.

The highest, according to these findings by USA Today in March of 2011, is Louisville Cardinals headman Rick Pitino who made about $9 million -- which includes a one-time bonus of $3.6 million. With his '10 salary, Boeheim would be ranked 11th among the USA Today list, which has been updated with '11-12 salaries.

It is not known what Boeheim made in '11-12, which could be considered his most tumultuous, yet, must impressive season ever. What is known from the report, is that Boeheim makes a $130,000 bonus for making the NCAA Tournament, $194,000 from a basketball camp he runs in the summer and that $1 million of his salary is paid by IMG, a sports business corporation that is mainly responsible for SU's broadcasting rights.

In the end, Boeheim is making some serious money, but when it comes down to it he's one heck of a bargain.

Almost 24 hours separates Nerlens Noel, the highly touted college basketball recruit from Tilton, Ma., from his current state until the commitment decision announcement on Wednesday (7:30 p.m. on ESPNU). By now, every rumor about where the 6-foot-10, 215-pound center will end up for the 2012-13 season has be talked, written and tweeted about, and according to Noel, who has been writing blog posts for ESPN.com, none of them are true.

Like I said, tonight we’re gonna have a group discussion and write things out and see where we’re most comfortable and what the best decision will be. The rumors about me already being committed are just crazy.

Anyone who knows me knows my mom, Dorcina, has to sign off on any decision and that she will play a major part in any decision. So tonight is when I’ll talk to her about it all.

Noel's post came late Monday morning and less than 12 hours after tweeting that he's going to shock the world. What that all means is up to the discretion to the fan bases still in the running for Noel's shot-blocking services -- Kentucky Wildcats, Syracuse Orange and Georgetown Hoyas. All of whom will be closely watching ESPNU Wednesday night.

Minutes after tallying an unofficial total of six points, five rebounds and three blocks Sunday in the All-American Championship All-Star showcase game, the nation's top college basketball prospect, Nerlens Noel, set a date for the announcement of his commitment decision -- April 11.

"it's time to end this and make a decision," said Noel told the media after helping the East Team defeat the West Team 84-72.

After months of being recruited by the country's top college basketball programs, Noel has narrowed the field down to three schools -- Kentucky Wildcats, Syracuse Orange and Georgetown Hoyas. The two favorites are Kentucky and Syracuse, with a slim majority believing UK will be the choice.

Earlier last week, rumors spread rapidly that Noel was a solid commit to the John Calipari-led Wildcats, but Noel said the rumors were not true.

Syracuse basketball commit Dajuan Coleman netted all his seven points in the first half and added 10 rebounds for the East Team which lost to the West Team 106-102 in the 2012 McDonald's All-American Game on Wednesday in Chicago, Il. Coleman (6-foot-9, 275 pounds) didn't help his team earn a victory, but did showcase a lot of impressive skill sets, including, clearing out bodies in the paint to snag a rebound.

Coleman's performance was good enough that CBSSports.com's college basketball insider, Jon Rothstein, predicts that the Jamesville-Dewitt product will be ready to help the Orange next season. Syracuse will need to replace, at least, four players due to graduation or entering the NBA Draft.

Not in last night's All-Star showcase was another Syracuse '12 recruit Jerami Grant (6-7, 200), who will play in The Jordan Brand Classic, April 14th in Charlotte, Nc. Also in that game, will be top recruit, center Nerlens Noel, who is still deciding to commit to Syracuse, Kentucky or Georgetown.
