These two teams have played every year since and Pittsburgh seizes control of the series since then as Syracuse has gone 29-35-1.

Syracuse basketball might have ended the 2018-19 season with a quick exit from the NCAA tournament, but exciting times are ahead thanks to both new and returning players.  Among them will be Glens Falls guard Joe Girard, a 6’1” high-scorer who will add shooting.  Another shooting guard, Brycen Goodine from Rhode Island will also add scoring; he’s a member of ESPN’s top 100 recruits for the coming year.  The Orange will also expect to get some minutes and production out of 6’10” John Bol Ajak from Pennsylvania at center and 6’7” forward Quincy Guerrier from Canada at forward.  The most recen
