SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- Earlier today, Syracuse Athletics announced the Orange will host Boston University on December 10. It will be the first meeting between Syracuse and BU in 23 years.
Syracuse leads the all-time series, 6-1.
The Terriers, led by Eric Fanning, finished last season 19-15 overall, 11-7 in the Patriot League. They were eliminated in the second round of the CampusInsider.com Tournament.
Fanning, a 6-foot-5 guard, averaged 15.3 points per game last season, which was fifth-best in the Patriot League. He started his career at Wagner before transferring to BU in 2013. He sat out the 2013-14 season due to NCAA rules, and has been a significant contributor for the Terriers ever since.
BU has seven NCAA Tournament appearances, with the most recent coming in 2011.
