Mar 1, 2019

With only three games remaining in the regular season, the Syracuse Orange (18-10, 9-6) will take on the Wake Forest Demon Deacons (11-16, 4-11) Saturday afternoon in North Carolina. A difficult end of the stretch schedule, had led to a couple tough losses in back to back conferencegames against ranked teams, #1 Duke and #5 UNC. Despite playing these two teams well and putting up a fight, a loss is still a loss at the end of the day. Fortunately, the Orange are matchedup against a weak Wake Forest team at just the right time.

The Orange defeated the Eagles on the road a little over a week ago with a score of 77-71. The Orange will look to repeat that outing in front of the home crowd.

Orange Will Renew Big East Rivalry Against Georgetown

Dec 6, 2018

Syracuse Orange Men’s Basketball (6-2) will host the Georgetown Hoyas (7-1) as they look to continue their four-game winning streak after a slower than expected start to the season.

When the Orange left the Big East Conference back in 2013, Georgetown was their biggest rival. The two schools agreed to play four more games against each other, one each year, after their departure. However, the historical rivalry might be coming to an end since this is the final scheduled game between these two schools since that agreement.
