Syracuse stars Coleman, Devendorf and Jones to get degrees

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) Former Syracuse basketball stars Derrick Coleman, Eric Devendorf and Mookie Jones will receive their degrees this weekend.

Coleman was the top pick in the NBA draft in 1990 but didn't have enough credits to earn his degree when he left school. He completed his work online and will celebrate with his mother back home in Detroit.

Devendorf and Jones were teammates, but Devendorf declared early for the draft after the 2009 season and went unpicked, and Jones was suspended from school in the middle of his senior season (2011-12).
