Syracuse Athletics announced two additions to its out of conference schedule for the 2018-2019 slate.

The theme here? Eagles.

Syracuse will host Eastern Washington on November 6 and Morehead State on November 10.

The games are part of the larger 2K Sports Classic, if Syracuse were to lose one of those games it would still meet UConn at Madison Square Garden on November 15 and either Oregon or Iowa the next day.

Other out of conference games already scheduled include Cornell, Old Dominion and Buffalo. Syracuse will most likely add another five teams or so to round out the slate.

SU has never played Eastern Washington but has beaten Morehead State both times the schools met. With the news two weeks back that Tyus Battle is returning to the Orange, SU has its starting five back in tact for the first time since 1999-2000.

That year, The Orange started the season 19-0 and made a run to the Sweet 16.
