Syracuse to host Georgetown Dec. 8

Sports

Patrick Ewing is set for a return to the Carrier Dome.

The Syracuse men’s basketball team will be hosting Ewing’s Georgetown Hoyas on Dec. 8.

Ewing was an arch-rival of head coach Jim Boeheim and the Orange back in the 1980s as the Big East turned into a national phenomenon.

The Hoyas are coming off a disappointing season, while Syracuse is fresh off a trip to the Sweet 16.  They’re will be brining back all five starters, which only raises the expectations for a special season.
