Georgetown and Syracuse agree to renew rivalry with set of home-and-home series

On Tuesday, Georgetown and Syracuse announced that their intense basketball rivalry would not go down with the old Big East conference, which dissolved in early 2012. The two schools agreed to play one game against each other each year for four years.

The first game will be played in the 2015-2016 season, when the Orange will visit the Verizon Center to play the Hoyas. The following season, the Hoyas will travel up to Syracuse.

The last time the two teams faced in the regular season was when the Hoyas clinched the 2012-2013 regular season Big East title by beating the Orange 61-39 at the Verizon Center.
