It seems like when Duke and Syracuse meet, an instant classic is likely on the way. Maybe conference realignment isn’t so bad after all. (Okay, I’m kidding on that one.)
The first time these two teams met in the regular season as ACC foes, Syracuse pulled out a memorable win in overtime that captured the attention of college basketball fans on a very busy Saturday. Later that season, Duke held off the Orange in Durham with Jim Boeheim flipping out.
