I'm not convinced that VATech's hoops are going to be considered rivalry unless VATech beats the Orange a few times or the football animosity that once was pops up in hoops.

FSU, Clemson and GATech have an advantage in that they have rarely, if ever, seen Syracuse hoops. They could easily grow to hoops rivals if they can ignore the hype and come our swinging, especially FSU as they are strong in hoops right now.

FSU will never be a basketball rivalry for Syracuse. They are too different culturally and SU fans will never view FSU as a basketball rivalry, even if FSU beats us 9 out of 10 times, Syracuse fans will never consider FSU to be our rival in basketball. Oh, and SU fans will never care about playing FSU in basketball.

Considering that many SU fans see Pitt as a basketball rival it will be them in the ACC. Remember that game at Pitt, 2 seasons ago, where the Panthers were up 19-0 to start the game, and Syracuse came storming back with 17 straight unanswered? Pitt pulled it out in the end. I believe both teams were ranked in the top 5.

For now I think there will be a 6 team basketball group consisting of Syracuse, Pitt, Maryland, UNC, Duke and NC St
Va Tech, UVa, Clemson, FSU & Miami will occasionally crash the party. Wake, BC and Ga Tech are still hung over.

Yeah, I remember that game. It was a great game, but at the same time the most bizaare game that I ever saw, at the beginning. I have never seen one team start a game on a 19-0 run, and then the other team goes on a 17-0 run. Simply AMAZING!
