Syracuse men's/women's basketball vs. NC State Mega-Thread

In a scheduling quirk that probably costs everyone involved more money, both the Syracuse Orange men’s and women’s basketball teams will face off against the N.C. State Wolfpack tonight… except in different locations.

For the SU women’s team (18-5, 7-3) things get started at 7 p.m. ET from the Carrier Dome (which you can watch on ACC Network Extra). But the Orange men (17-7, 8-3) tip off at 8 p.m. ET from PNC Arena in Raleigh, N.C. (and on Raycom). Since you obviously care about both games, why not just combine the Gamethreads, right?

So before the women’s game gets started, all you need to know about both contests is below. Also, let’s hope John Gillon makes a surprise appearance at PNC Arena to relive 2017’s 43-point outbreak
