Syracuse Orange basketball's Orange Madness ended about half hour early when a 25-year-old man was stabbed in the concourse area of the Dome.

The victim was taken to Upstate University Hospital in stable condition, said Syracuse police Sgt. Tom Connellan. The stabbing occurred around 9:30 p.m. in the concourse area of the Dome, near the concession stands, as did other fights, Connellan said.

The victim has not cooperated with police and no suspects are in custody.

Always a good idea to impede the investigation into your own stabbing. He's in serious but stable condition.

No one involved in the incident was a Syracuse student or employee, which is good news. Of course the bad news is that this is just one more in a string of recent violent events on the Hill.

Nancy Cantor and DOCTOR Gross later issued a statement regarding the incident:

"We were saddened to learn of the incident at the Dome last night. There is no place and no tolerance for anything like this, and future Orange Madness events will be designed to prevent incidents such as this. We are proud of the terrific partnership among Syracuse City Police, SU Department of Public Safety and Carrier Dome security staff, and we are confident that their work will continue to maintain a safe and secure environment for our patrons who come to the Dome to enjoy the hard work and efforts of our student-athletes."

SPD currently has no suspects and no one in custody.

What does this mean for Orange Madness in the future? Too early to tell but don't be surprised if tickets must be purchased or are limited to specific groups of people next year.
