I don't know if there are other schools out there with still-undefeated men's and women's basketball programs.  If there are others, it's not many.  So let's take advantage of it while we can.

The 9-0 Syracuse Orange women's basketball team and 11-0 Syracuse Orange men's basketball team will both take to the Carrier Dome tomorrow in a double-header the likes of which these parts hasn't seen in, like, a long time...and stuff.

For the No. 22 women's team, they'll face off against 1-9 Delaware State at 2pm in an attempt to go 10-0 for the first time since 1974-75. 

As for the gents, the No. 5 team in all the land will host the 6-6 Oakland Grizziles at 7pm.  The Grizz have matched up with some solid opponents this season, losing to Kansas (89-59), Memphis (77-46) and Michigan State (88-57).  Syracuse fans like to think this year's schedule is tougher than usual...we've got nothing on these guys. 

SU doesn't know yet whether or not Arinze Onuaku will be joining them on the floor tomorrow night.  AO sat out practice today with a "right quad strain" and is considered a game-time decision. Meanwhile Brandon Triche, another member of the suddenly walking-wounded, did practice on his injured ankle and will play tomorrow night for sure.
