COLLEGE BASKETBALL Orange, St. John’s to continue rivalry series


SYRACUSE — Syracuse University and St. John’s University will play a home-and-home men’s basketball series that will feature a game at Madison Square Garden and a contest in the Carrier Dome over the next two seasons.

Syracuse will play St. John’s in Madison Square Garden on Dec. 14. St. John’s will come to the Carrier Dome the following season on a date to be determined.

“There are traditional series that are very important to us that go beyond conference affiliations,” said Dr. Daryl Gross, Director of Athletics at Syracuse. “One of those is St John’s, which has an obvious place in Syracuse basketball history.’’

Syracuse and St. John’s played 86 times. The Red Storm is the seventh-most familiar foe in Orange hoop history. Both programs were original members of the Big East Conference. Syracuse moves to the Atlantic Coast Conference in 2013-14.

Syracuse owns a 49-37 advantage in the overall series. The two clubs are scheduled to play this season on Sunday, Feb. 10, in the Carrier Dome.

“The rivalry with St. John’s has been one of the strongest for our program,” said Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim. “Playing in Madison Square Garden is always a special event for Syracuse and for our fans in New York City. It will be great that our fans in Central New York will have the chance to see St. John’s in the Dome the following year.”
