Long-time Big East rivals Syracuse and Georgetown play their last regular season game in the Carrier Dome in front of a record-breaking crowd.
It was only a matter of time before Syracuse broke the record for most spectators at an on-campus basketball game.
SU announced Tuesday that the men's basketball game between the No. 8 Orange and the No. 11 Georgetown Hoyas on Feb. 23 has sold out. The final ticket count of 35,012 breaks SU's previous record 34,616 fans set on Feb. 27, 2010 when the Orange hosted Villanova.
This marks the 72nd time a crowd of over 30,000 people will watch a basketball game in the Carrier Dome. Georgetown has been the opponent in 17 of those games.
