first_img Published on June 10, 2014 at 12:02 pm Contact Matt: [email protected] | @matt_schneidman Syracuse will renew its rivalry with Georgetown in basketball starting in 2015-16, according to an SU Athletics release.The deal consists of a four-year home-and-home series, with Georgetown hosting in 2015-16, Syracuse in 2016-17, the Hoyas in 2017-18 and the Orange in 2018-19.“Continuing this historically important rivalry has always been of the highest priority for us since our move to the (Atlantic Coast Conference),” SU Director of Athletics Daryl Gross said in the release. “…and something I know our players, coaches, fans and the entire SU community are excited about.”The two former-Big East rivals didn’t play each other in the 2013-14 season after Syracuse’s move to the ACC and are also not scheduled to face off in the 2014-15.Syracuse leads 49-41 in the all-time series, and won the last game between the two teams, a 58-55 victory, in the 2013 Big East tournament semifinals.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“Georgetown against Syracuse is one of the great rivalries in college basketball,” Georgetown head coach John Thompson III said in the release.  “From the days when my father was coaching against Coach (Jim) Boeheim to our most recent games, this is one of those games that generates passion from both sides.”The Orange and Hoyas hold the second-highest attendance total in Carrier Dome history at 35,012, when then-No. 11 Georgetown knocked off then-No. 8 Syracuse on Feb. 23, 2013. That was the final Big East regular-season game between the two teams, and only 35,446 fans that attended the the Syracuse-Duke game on Feb. 1 of this past season ranks higher.“The games in that series have been played at a remarkably high level over the years,” SU head coach Jim Boeheim said in the release. “We’re looking forward to the challenge of playing Georgetown again.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Charlie take early lead in Group E

first_imgCharlie Smith jumped into the early lead in Group E of the FLOW-ISSA Manning Cup competition after scoring a 4-0 win over Clan Carthy at the Tony Spaulding Sports Complex yesterday.Tyrick Reid led the way for the former champions with a goal in each half, while Zemario, Sinclair and Omario Fisher netted the other goals for the Jerome Waite-coached team.Reid, who scored with the last kick of the first half, scored again six minutes into the second half to take his tally to three for the season, following his opener in their 2-1 win over Mona High in their first match on Monday. The midfielder is hoping his goals can continue to push the Arnett Gardens based school all the way this season.”My goals were very important today, I scored right at half time and score the other just after the break. I feel very good about the performance.NOT IMPRESSED”It means a lot to me to know that my goals can push the team forward, and I look to do the same in upcoming games. We are going for the Manning Cup and the Super Cup and we will be trying our best,” he told The Gleaner.Although happy for the points, Charlie Smith’s coach, Waite, was still far from impressed with his team’s performance.”It was a little lacklustre, but in the end, we got four goals. It’s a young team and we are still struggling, but we are going to see how we can get them focused and see how far we can go. It’s a lot of room for improvement in all areas, but they are doing what they can manage. We now have to focus on the next game against Waterford,” he said.In the group’s other game, Holy Trinity stopped Mona 4-0 with double strikes from Jabari Lawrence and Shai Smith. Charlie Smith lead the group with six points, followed by Waterford and Mona with three and Mona on none.In other games, St George’s beat Tivoli 2-0, Greater Portmore outscored Tarrant 4-3, Kingston Technical beat Edith Dalton James 2-1, while St Andrew Technical and Eltham drew 0-0.last_img read more
