It's a rematch of a preseason game from October 2012 but this time, there's more on the line for SU fans.
I've confirmed that on October 14, the Philadelphia 76ers will play the New York Knicks in a preseason game to be played at the Carrier Dome.
Game time is tentatively set for 7:00 p.m.
Of course, an SU favorite Carmelo Anthony just re-signed with the New York Knicks while Philadelphia boasts Michael Carter-Williams and Jerami Grant.
Before they were the Philadelphia 76ers, of course, the franchise was the Syracuse Nationals winning an NBA title in 1955.
Ticket information will be announced at a later date.
