St. Bonaventure's men's basketball game against Syracuse University will be played on Dec. 22 at the Carrier Dome.
It's the the second time in three seasons Bona's will visit the Orange. Syracuse defeated the Bonnies in November 2015, 77-69. The Bonnies return four starters from last year's 20-12 team. Syracuse returns two starters from a team that went 19-15 and went to the National Invitation Tournament. The Orange, however, have a strong recruiting class entering in the fall. Syracuse will play host to the University at Buffalo on Dec. 19. The rest of the Bonnies' non-conference schedule will be released in July.
