Rivalry Breakdown: Syracuse-Georgetown
Frank Franklin II/Associated Press

When the Big East was formed in 1979, it was guaranteed to generate some new rivalries along college basketball’s East Coast. What wasn’t guaranteed was that the best of those rivalries would turn out to feature two of the most successful programs in the country, but Syracuse and Georgetown provided just that.

Between them, the two teams have accounted for eight Final Four appearances and a pair of national titles since their formerly shared conference was formed. The rivalry’s currently on hold as Syracuse tries to fit the games in alongside a crowded ACC schedule, but it’s already produced more than its share of basketball icons, from Allen Iverson to Carmelo Anthony.

In this slideshow, we'll take a closer look at the Hoyas and the Orange, including the players, games and moments that have defined the signature matchup of the original Big East.
