SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) -The upcoming game between No. 2 Villanova and third-ranked Syracuse is officially a sellout and will break the Orange's NCAA record for the largest on-campus crowd to see a college basketball game.
School officials said Wednesday that 34,616 tickets have been sold for the night game on Feb. 27 in the Carrier Dome.
The current record also was set against Villanova, when 33,633 turned out on March 5, 2006, to see the final home game of former Orange star Gerry McNamara.
