Syracuse basketball plays host to former Big East foe

  • Text size: + -

SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- The Syracuse men's basketball team welcomes an old rival back to the Dome tonight Boston College will be on the road to take on the top-ranked Orange.

The last time these two teams met in January, SU came away with the 69-59 victory, however you may remember it wasn't as easy as the scoreboard suggests. Syracuse trailed with just over 10 minutes to play, then went on a 16-1 run to pull away from their old Big East foe.

Since then, the Orange have made a habit of coming from behind, beating Pittsburgh on a last-second buzzer beater, and squeaking by N.C. State Saturday with a basket with just 6 seconds to play.

SU is 25-0, B.C. is 6-and-19.

Tonight will also feature the debut of the new throwback jerseys.

They are part of Nike's hyper-elite uniform series, showing off the iconic cursive script ‘Syracuse’ that the team wore in the 80s.

Tip off is at 7 p.m. The game airs nationally on ESPN2.

Time Warner Cable Sports will carry a pre-game show, and TWC News will show Coach Jim Boeheim's post-game press conference live. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
