SU basketball to play twice on ESPN's 'Big Monday'

The Syracuse Orange may be switching conferences and getting new opponents this year, but some familiar traditions will remain the same.

SU basketball will make two appearances on ESPNâ??s national â??Big Mondayâ?? telecasts this upcoming season, at home vs. Notre Dame on February 3 and at Maryland on February 24. Both games will tip off at 7:00 p.m.

â??ESPN Big Monday provides a terrific window to further showcase ACC Basketball,â?? said ACC Commissioner John Swofford. â??This opportunity provides our players, coaches and fans with unprecedented appointment viewing, and it will be exciting to watch all 15 member schools compete throughout the season.â??

The ACC will be featured eight times on Monday nights between January 13 and March 3. The conference takes over the Big Eastâ??s former â??Big Mondayâ?? time slot, which was vacated after the â??newâ?? Big East signed a TV deal with Fox Sports.

SU Athletics says the complete 2013-14 ACC menâ??s basketball schedule will be released later this month.

Remember that CNY Central is the new home for ACC football and basketball in Central New York. For more information, click here.
