SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- Earlier today, SU officials announced the addition of North Florida to the 2016-17 non-conference basketball schedule. The game will be played on December 3 at the Carrier Dome.
This is the first matchup between the Orange and the Ospreys, who have won back-to-back Atlantic Sun regular season championships.
North Florida returns leading scorer Dallas Moore, who averaged 19.6 points and six assists per game last season. He declared for the 2016 NBA draft, but ultimately decided to return to school for his senior season.
The Ospreys lost in the first round of the NIT Tournament to Florida, 97-68.
