The Orange and Johnnies will square off once again in Madison Square Garden.

The Syracuse Orange owe the St. John's Red Storm a return game as part of the school's home-and-home series and it sounds like we now know when that will happen.

Though it should be noted Mike Waters seemed to know this date way back in April so I'm not entirely sure why this is news...

Syracuse also owes the Johnnies a win on their home court. St. John's defeated SU 69-57 in the Carrier Dome last season. SU led 55-52 with five and a half minutes to go and then the bottom fell out, as was wont to happen last year. That loss also snapped a nine-game winning streak in the series for the Orange. SU last defeated St. John's in 2013, 68-63, at Madison Square Garden.

Added to the mix this season is Chris Mullin, who took over as the head coach of the Red Storm after Steve Lavin left the program following last year. Expect to see a lot of grainy photos of Mullin and Pearl Washington going toe-to-toe.

So here's the dates we know for sure on the 2015-2016 schedule right now...

November 25-27: Battle 4 Atlantis (Opponents TBD)

December 2: vs. Wisconsin Badgers

December 13: at. St. John's Red Storm
