The Syracuse Orange men’s basketball team (2-0) returns to action on Thursday night against the (former rival) Connecticut Huskies (2-0) at New York City’s Madison Square Garden. While it’s not the old Big East, the 2K Classic still has some sort of ring to it... right?
We have James at the game, and he’ll be following along from press row once things tip off around 7 p,m. ET. If you’re not at MSG, you can catch all of the action on ESPN2/WatchESPN. The No. 15 Orange are favored (by eight points), but any margin of victory would be fine just to shut UConn fans — who haven’t beaten us in football or men’s basketball since December 2016 — up for the next year.
