The Syracuse Orange men’s basketball team will host the Georgetown Hoyas on January 9, per release. A time has yet to be determined. The matchup will mark the 96th time Syracuse and Georgetown have squared off against one another.
The meeting will occur between two ACC games as Syracuse hosts Florida State on Jan. 5/6 and Clemson on Jan. 12/13.
Patrick Ewing returns for his fourth year as head coach of his alma mater. The Hoyas went 15-17 a season ago, losing in the first round of the Big East Tournament. Georgetown is projected to finish at the bottom of the Big East this season after a bevy of players left the program, including Mac McClung who transferred to Texas Tech.
UPDATE: Georgetown isn’t the only team added to the schedule today, either. The Athletic reported that Rider will be a non-conference opponent on a date TBD. Additionally, we have confirmation that the Bryant game will happen on Nov. 27 at 3 p.m. ET.
