The 2022-23 Georgetown Hoyas have scheduled former BIG EAST rival, the Syracuse Orange, for Saturday, December 10th at the JMA Wireless Dome in Syracuse. Of course, tip time and broadcast information are to be determined, but recent visits to the north have been late afternoon or early evening matches featured on the ESPN family of networks.

Under Patrick Ewing, Georgetown has won the last two home games against Syracuse but has fallen on the road three times. This will be the first game at the arena formerly known as the Carrier Dome. Moreover, this game could be the end of the contract between Georgetown and Syracuse. The rivalry was renewed in April 2019 and reported to run “through 2022-23.”

There is not much other scheduling news for Patrick Ewing and Georgetown at this point, aside from the recent deals with and Syracuse and South Carolina (home). The Hoyas were not in the Gavitt Games last year and hope to have a Big Ten matchup early in the season. A Big 12 contest at Texas Tech on November 30th was announced earlier this month.
