Georgetown-Syracuse to renew rivalry

SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- The Georgetown-Syracuse basketball rivalry is back.

The schools announced they've reached agreement on a four-year, home-and-home series starting in 2015.

Georgetown will play host to the Orange at Verizon Center during the 2015-16 and 2017-18 seasons, and the Hoyas will visit the Carrier Dome in 2016-17 and 2018-19. Specific dates have not been set.

The first game of the renewal will be the first regular-season matchup between the teams since the Hoyas beat the Orange 61-39 at Verizon Center to clinch the 2012-13 Big East regular-season title.

The rivals went their separate ways when Syracuse joined the Atlantic Coast Conference last summer. The teams have met 90 times, with Syracuse leading the series 49-41.

The Orange won the most recent game between the teams, 58-55 in the 2013 Big East tournament.
