It is home to the Syracuse Orange football, basketball, and lacrosse teams. High school football championships are also held in "The Dome," as are occasional concerts. New York's high school indoor track and field championships have also been held at the Carrier Dome, as well as the annual New York State Field Band Conference championships. - Source: Wikipedia
Syracuse's Jim Boeheim has led Syracuse to four Final Fours, once in each of the past four decades since taking over as head coach at his alma mater in 1976.
Georgetown lost out on big-time recruit Nerlens Noel. Its leading scorer, Jason Clark, graduated. Another gifted contributor, Hollis Thompson, departed a year early to pursue professional basketball. And somehow Georgetown improved.
John Thompson Jr. coached Georgetown to a regular-season title in 1979-80, Year 1 of the Big East, and his son took the Hoyas to the final regular-season title before the conference undergoes massive changes, emphatically ending the rivalry against Syracuse with a 61-39 win Saturday.
Porter's breakout performance — 33 points, eight rebounds, five steals while playing all 40 minutes — in Georgetown's final Big East game at the Carrier Dome left no doubt that both the sophomore forward and his team belong near the top.
Porter's incredible play stopped the Orange's 38-game winning streak in the Carrier Dome, the longest in Division I, and it came in front of a disappointed record crowd of 35,012, the largest ever to see a college basketball on campus. It was the fewest points scored by Syracuse in the Carrier Dome.
Syracuse and St. John's started their basketball rivalry more than a century ago, and it will go for at least two more years even as the original members of the Big East Conference part ways next season.
With his wife, Juli, looking on at the postgame press conference and his young children close by, Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim's final remarks were not about his milestone 900th career victory.
Syracuse University ended its annual "Orange Madness" event at the Carrier Dome 30 minutes early after a man was stabbed during the celebration.
If you know Jim Calhoun, then you knew exactly what he was going to say on his last day as a coach. He got this far believing he could talk almost anyone into practically anything. He was not about to stop now.
The ushers in black blazers emblazoned with "Prudential Center Security" gathered in twos and threes as the final seconds drifted away inside the arena. They clutched walkie-talkies and shot wary glances at Seton Hall's student section bouncing to House of Pain's "Jump Around" and an impending upset.
For 44 minutes and 31 seconds, Georgetown gave Syracuse fits.
Dion Waiters stared over at George Washington's Dan Guest as the Colonials tried to get a feel for facing Syracuse's stalwart zone defense.
