"Poetry in Moten" is in town for the next week.
Lawrence Moten, the all-time leading scorer in Syracuse Orange and Big East basketball history returned to the Salt City which he calls his "2nd home".
Moten's primary reason for coming to town was to help out with Coach Boeheim's basketball camp but he's also making goodwill trips to baseball stadiums in Rochester and Binghamton, in addition to throwing out the ceremonial first pitch at the Syracuse Chiefs game on Wednesday.
Moten played for the Orange from 1991-1995, the silky smooth guard registered 2,334 points in his SU career, great enough for a 19.3 career points per game average.
To put it in perspective, the next closest player on the SU scoring list is Derrick Coleman at 2,143 and even an all-time great like Gerry McNamara is at 2,099. (Still impressive numbers by the way)
These days, Moten is a physical education teacher in his hometown Washington, D.C. giving back to the community that helped mold him into the man Orange fans came to know and love in his time in Orange.
