Syracuse men’s & women’s basketball Orange Madness scheduled for Oct. 21

Mark your calendars, Orange-folk.

NCAA Basketball: Final Four-Syracuse vs North Carolina Robert Deutsch-USA TODAY Sports

Of course, we’re still very much in the midst of Syracuse Orange football season. And yes, I also hate when basketball season encroaches a little on that. Still, it’s worth noting that SU basketball season — for both the men’s and women’s teams -- is right around the corner:

The mostly-annual Orange Madness event is set to take place on Friday, October 21, and is likely to be one of the most festive season kickoff/pep rallies yet. With the men’s and women’s teams each coming off trips to the Final Four (and the Orange women making it to the national title game) , there’s a lot to celebrate come October.

Syracuse Athletics will be providing more details, no doubt, as October 21 gets closer. But until then, get excited thinking about the lofty expectations for the men’s and women’s programs this fall. Given the talent arriving and returning on both rosters, return trips to the Final Four could conceivably be on the table. It’s a fun time to be an Orange hoops fan.
