Syracuse basketball to open season against Cornell, per report

To nobody’s surprise, really.

The Syracuse Orange men’s basketball team will open its season on November 10 against Cornell, per Jon Rothstein.

This game will have some intrigue as Jimmy Boeheim, son of Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim (perhaps you’ve heard of him) will be a freshman on the Cornell basketball team this season.

Yesterday it was announced that the Orange will also host fellow New York team, Buffalo in the non-conference portion of its schedule. Here’s what we know of Syracuse’s non-conference schedule thus far.

November 10 - Cornell at the Carrier Dome

November 17 (18) - Texas Southern at the Carrier Dome

November 20 - Oakland at the Carrier Dome

November 22 - Toledo at the Carrier Dome

December 2 - Kansas in Miami (neutral site)

December 5 - UConn at MSG

Syracuse will also host Maryland as part of the ACC/Big Ten Challenge, St. Bonaventure, and will head to the Verizon Center to take on Georgetown.

Thoughts on the non-conference schedule thus far? Is that Daryl Gross scheduling to prove that Syracuse really is New York’s college team? Leave your thoughts in the comment section below.
