The Syracuse Orange men's basketball team is coming off just their second loss of the season, failing to defend late in the second half versus the Villanova Wildcats and eventually losing in overtime.
The Pittsburgh Panthers are also coming off of a road loss, a 64-61 defeat at the hands of the Louisville Cardinals.
Syracuse enters this match 18-2 overall and 6-1 in the Big East Conference, tied with the Marquette Golden Eagles for the top spot.
Pittsburgh is 17-5 overall and currently holds the fifth-best record in the Big East at 5-4, but is in the bottom half of the conference due to ties among teams above them.
This is the first and only regular season contest between the soon-to-be Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) foes, and will take place in the Petersen Events Center, home of the Panthers.
