Owls to play Syracuse at MSG

The Temple men’s basketball team will face Syracuse in next season's Gotham Classic at Madison Square Garden.

The Dec. 22 game will not be a Big East Conference matchup, because the Owls will not become an all-sports member of the league until 2013.  The football team, however, will join the Big East next season.

Temple finished this season with a 24-8 record and lost to South Florida in the second round of the NCAA tournament.  The Orange (34-3) lost to Ohio State in Saturday’s East Regional final.
