He's not coming too, is he?
He's not coming too, is he?

We're adding a touch of elegance and class to the 2012-2013 Syracuse Orange basketball schedule with the news that the Ivy League's Princeton Tigers will be traveling to the Dome on November 21.

Coach Mitch Henderson was a member of the 1996 Princeton squad that upset UCLA in the NCAA Tournament. In his first season at the helm, he guided the Tigers to a 20-12 overall record and a spot in the postseason College Basketball Invitational. Princeton lost in the quarterfinals to Pittsburgh, 82-61.

Unlike many of the schools on the non-con schedule, the Orange and the Tigers have a bit of history. They've played 33 times with SU holding a 24-9 advantage. Syracuse has won five straight in the series, which was last played in 2004 (56-45).

So where are we at with the non-con schedule?
