Syracuse Basketball: Orange Will Host Loyola Greyhounds November 25

The Greyhounds and Orange will play for the first-time ever.

David Butler II-USA TODAY Sports

As the Syracuse Orange football season draws closer, so does the completion of the Syracuse Orange basketball schedule. Some of the non-conference opponents are starting to trickle in and we can add the Loyola Greyhounds to that list now. The Hounds will visit the Carrier Dome on November 25 for the first-ever meeting between the two schools.

Loyola is coming off of an 11-19 season under G.G. Smith, son of Tubby. Smith is in his second season at the helm and looks to get the school back to where they were in 2012 when they went 24-9 and made the NCAA Tournament. It's also the school's second season in the Patriot League after shuffling up from the MAAC.

The fact that SU has never played Loyola led Mike Waters on a journey to find out what other schools the Orange have never face-off against.

Updating the full 2014-2015 schedule, here's what she looks like...
