Looks like that non-conference schedule is finally all wrapped up.

"Man, what am I doing for New Year's Eve?"

Going to/watching Syracuse basketball take on Cornell, that's what!

As mentioned a week ago, the Orange's final non-conference basketball opponent is (of course) the Cornell Big Red. The long-time CNY foes will face off at the Carrier Dome on December 31 of this year, says Syracuse.com.

Last year, Syracuse won the almost-annual matchup, 82-60, taking its 34th straight victory in the series. The Orange have not lost to Cornell since 1969, an 89-80 OT defeat. All-time, the programs have met 119 times to-date, with Syracuse owning a lopsided 88-31 advantage.

After a nice stretch of success under coach Steve Donahue, the Big Red have crashed back to earth in the Ivy League. The 2013-14 campaign was an abject disaster for the team, as they went 2-26 overall (1-13 in the conference). It's worth noting last year's squad was without Shonn Miller, however, who returns this year and should once again be Cornell's best player.
