Georgetown To Continue Syracuse Rivalry After 2013?

According to ESPN's Andy Katz, Georgetown coach John Thompson III would like to see Georgetown's rivalry with Syracuse continue after Syracuse leaves for the ACC in 2013.

Thompson couldn't say when it will resume but he is confident it will happen. He did say the tough decision for the Hoyas and other Big East schools will be how to handle nonconference games when the Big East likely goes to 20 conference games in 2013-14 when there are 18 league members. Thompson said he expects the league to move to 20 games and that means schools like Georgetown will have to decide does it participate in a neutral site event or two, or choose a home-and-home series. A Syracuse non-conference game would fall in the latter category.
