Whether or not we get a college basketball season (in some shape or form) is still yet to be determined, but that hasn’t stopped teams from scheduling games. The Syracuse Orange men’s basketball team announced on Monday that it will host Jacksonville State on December 10.

Should the game actually occur it would mark the first meeting between both teams. Jacksonville State, located in Jacksonville, Alabama, finished 13-19 a season ago under fourth-year head coach Ray Harper. The Gamecocks finished with an 8-10 record in the Ohio Valley Conference.

Jacksonville State will return 6-foot-7 guard/forward Kayne Henry, who averaged 10.9 points and 10.9 rebounds per game last season.

The Syracuse non-conference schedule is starting to round into form as SU just announced the addition of Green Bay (December 8) last week. Here’s what we know about the 2020 non-conference schedule thus far:

Nov 10 - UMBC at home

TBD - Mercer at home

TBD - ACC-Big Ten Challenge on road

TBD - Georgetown at home

Dec 8 - Green Bay at home

Dec 10 - Jacksonville State at home

Dec 19 - LSU at Madison Square Garden
