 SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) - The Georgetown-Syracuse basketball rivalry is back.
The schools announced Tuesday they've reached agreement on a four-year, home-and-home series starting in 2015.
Georgetown will host the Orange at Verizon Center during the 2015-16 and 2017-18 seasons, and the Hoyas will visit the Carrier Dome in 2016-17 and 2018-19. Specific dates have not been set.
The first game of the renewal will be the first regular-season matchup between the teams since the Hoyas beat the Orange, 61-39, at Verizon Center to clinch the 2012-13 Big East regular-season title.
The rivals went their separate ways when Syracuse joined the Atlantic Coast Conference last summer. The teams have met 90 times, with Syracuse leading the series 49-41.
The Orange won the most recent game between the teams, 58-55 in the 2013 Big East tournament.
