The Syracuse Orange men’s basketball team will not play against LSU in the Gotham Classic this season, as first reported by Matt Norlander of CBS Sports.

The matchup was originally set to take place at Madison Square Garden, but due to scheduling complications the game will not occur.

The college basketball season officially tips off on Nov. 25, but Syracuse’s non-conference schedule is still in the works. The ACC-Big Ten Challenge is expected to be played, as is the Georgetown game.

Syracuse will play its usual 20 ACC games this season, three of which will occur in December. The Orange will play Boston College, Clemson, Louisville, North Carolina, North Carolina State and Pittsburgh twice in 2020-21.
