Syracuse will host Niagara in the Carrier Dome on Saturday, December 28.
The game marks the return to Syracuse of former Le Moyne head coach Patrick Beilein, the son of now-Cleveland Cavaliers head coach John Beilein. Before his departure, he led a Dolphins squad that reached the NCAA Division II men’s basketball tournament in three of his four years at the helm. His 2018 team reached the national quarterfinals, the furthest run in school history.
