Two weeks ago Jim Boeheim noted on the radio that Villanova and Syracuse would continue the schools' BIG EAST rivalry into the 2013-14 season following the Cuse's departure for the ACC.
Nova's Athletic Director later confirmed at a Villanova Athletics event that next season's matchup would be part of a "Home & Home" that would see the Wildcats host a game in the 2014-15 season.
Word out of Syracuse now is that the agreement is actually a "One, One, and One" series with the Orange and Wildcats playing at Madison Square Garden in 2015-16. With a neutral court game in New York City, both schools can engage the shared metropolitan hotbed of alumni while sustaining a historical rivalry and solidifying an out-of-conference opponent.
What do you think about this? Are you excited to keep the rivalry with Syracuse? Do you think this is good scheduling to maintain strong out-of-conference games?
