Next year’s Syracuse men’s basketball team now knows the details of their first marquee matchup of the season. The Orange will take on the Kansas Jayhawks in early December to conclude the third annual Hoophall Miami Invitational.

Syracuse leads the all-time series 3-2, but Kansas is a perennial national title contender and one of the most prestigious programs in college basketball history. The Jayhawks haven’t missed the NCAA tournament since 1989, claiming either a one or two seed in the big dance every year since 2000.
