SYRACUSE, N.Y. — Syracuse men’s basketball announced on Monday it has scheduled a non-conference home game in the upcoming season against Lehigh on Saturday, Dec. 18.
The Orange and the Mountain Hawks have played four times in the past, with the Orange having won them all, including posting a 57-47 victory in the last meeting in November 2015.
Lehigh, a member of the Patriot League, finished the 2020-21 season with a 4-11 overall record in a season abbreviated by the COVID pandemic.
Syracuse was 18-10 last season and made the NCAA Tournament despite being off the bubble for much of the year. Once in the dance, the No. 11 seed Orange upset San Diego State and West Virginia to make the Sweet Sixteen before losing to Houston.
The addition of Lehigh to the 2021-22 Syracuse schedule comes after the Orange announced last Friday that they will face off against Lafayette on Tuesday, Nov. 9.
Syracuse said it will continue to announce individual non-conference games when it receives contracts signed by both schools and approved by the university administration.
