Syracuse will travel to Louisville on Thursday, Jan. 21 at 9 p.m. EST on ESPN2. The game was originally scheduled for Feb. 1. It will be the Orange’s first game against a nationally-ranked team this year.
The Orange also scheduled make-up dates for their postponed games against Notre Dame (originally Jan. 10) and Georgia Tech (Jan. 14). The Virginia game will not be rescheduled, as the Cavaliers have opted out of the rest of the season. Syracuse will now play Notre Dame in the Carrier Dome on Jan. 21 and will travel to Georgia Tech on Feb. 2. Game times and TV selections are to be determined.
‘Cuse will return to the court on Sunday after a 29-day break due to COVID-19 protocol. The team will host Miami at noon on RSN/YES Network. Syracuse defeated the Hurricanes in their first meeting of the season, 69-58, on Dec. 10.
