NCAA Basketball: Cornell at Syracuse Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports

The Syracuse Orange men’s basketball team is back home to welcome long-time Central New York rival, the Cornell Big Red.

Cornell is 55th in the initial NET Rankings and while it’s still early, this is an opportunity for a Q2 win, which the Orange (who are sitting at 140) don’t have right now. Both teams like to play fast so this could be an entertaining game.

The game tips off from the JMA Wireless Dome at 8p.m. EST. The game will be broadcast on the ACC Network, which will feature Jim Boeheim. We don’t recommend playing a drinking game for every time Boeheim takes a dig at Luke Hancock as those will likely be frequent.
