Orange will face Marquette (again)

The last (and only) time Syracuse was in this position, the year was 1987 and Sherman Douglas was throwing alley-oops to Rony Seikaly. That year, the Orangemen advanced to the national title game to play the Indiana Hoosiers. But before SU even got there, it defeated Providence for the third time that season in the national semifinals game. That is to say, Syracuse met another Big East foe in the NCAA tournament.
