Your Mother's a Hoya

Posted June 10th, 2014 @ 11:30am by Rob Wegman

SU is bringing back its legendary rivalry with Georgetown University, beginning with a game at the Verizon Center in D.C. sometime during the 2015-2016 season.

The Hoyas will host the Orange in both the 2015-2016 season and the 2017-2018 campaign, while the Carrier Dome will be the site of games in '16-'17 and '18-'19. No specific dates have been set as of now.

Officials at SU have previously stated a strong desire to keep the rivalry alive despite leaving the Big East, and today's joint press release means Georgetown has finally come around.

And while Cuse fans have been clamoring as well, essentially from the day the Orange made the move to the ACC, the fact that the series does not begin this upcoming season is probably a blessing. It's likely going to be a transitional year for Jim Boeheim's squad in 2014-2015, but a slew of reinforcements is on the way just in time to wipe the floor with the Hoyas the following season.
