St. John’s Continue Rivalry With Syracuse Through 2015


St. John’s and Syracuse released a joint announcement to state that the two schools will have a home-and-home series over the course of the next two seasons.

The fist game will be held next season at Madison Square Garden on December 15. The meeting at the Carrier Dome will occur the year after, in a date that has yet to be determined.

The continuation of the series was foreshadowed in July, when ‘Cuse coach Jim Boeheim expressed his interest in maintaining a connection with the Red Storm. St. John’s coach Steve Lavin also commented on the ongoing rivalry.

“St. John’s and Syracuse are two of the storied programs in NCAA history, both with top 10 numbers in overall victories and winning percentage.” Coach Lavin tweeted. “The Johnnies and Cuse rivalry is now more than a century old and deserves to continue.”

Syracuse has won their last seven match-ups with St. John’s while holding a 47-39 edge in the all time series. The two teams will play their 87th game February 10 as the Storm head up to the home of the Orange.
