Syracuse vs. Georgetown Twice In A Season: What A Concept!

New, comments

The 2009-10 Big East Basketball match-ups are out and SU fans are doing sombersalts. Or at least they will be in a minute.

Home Connecticut, Georgetown, Louisville, Marquette, Pittsburgh, Providence, St. John’s, USF, Villanova

Away Cincinnati, DePaul, Georgetown, Louisville, Notre Dame, Providence, Rutgers, Seton Hall, West Virginia

  • Let's break it down. Your three home-and-home opponents are Georgetown, Louisville and Providence. We (re: I) complain when USF or DePaul are on this list so I'll take it. You get two historical opponents and a third quality one in the Cardinals. And of course, SU vs. G'town twice in a season...as God intended it.
  • No road trips to UConn, Villanova or Pittsburgh, only games in the Dome. Thanks Big East Scheduling Gods!
  • Speaking of, that's a VERY soft Big East road schedule in general.  I approve.

So, piece what we know already with this new, here's what we're looking at so far:

HOME: Albany, Memphis, Connecticut, Georgetown, Louisville, Marquette, Pittsburgh, Providence, St. John’s, USF, Villanova

AWAY: Cincinnati, DePaul, Georgetown, Louisville, Notre Dame, Providence, Rutgers, Seton Hall, West Virginia

NEUTRAL: Ohio State/Cal/UNC (2 games), Florida

Thoughts?
