College basketball: SU, Villanova to play home-and-home series


Syracuse and Villanova have agreed on a home-and-home men’s basketball series that will feature a game in Philadelphia and a game in the Carrier Dome over the next two seasons.

SU will play Villanova at the Dome on Dec. 28 this coming season. The Orange will play at Villanova in the Wells Fargo Center in 2014.

Syracuse and Villanova first met during the 1945-46 season. The two programs have played 70 times and SU owns a narrow 38-32 edge in the series.

The two teams split games this past season with the Orange winning 71-61 at home on Jan. 12, and Villanova earning a 75-71 home overtime win on Jan. 26.

“The series with Villanova has been one of our most competitive, year in and year out,” Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim said. “It really took off when coach (Rollie) Massimino was in charge and has certainly continued with coach (Jay) Wright at Villanova.”
