The Orange will have to wait until Sunday for their 2020-21 home opener
The Syracuse Orange women’s basketball game versus DII Lincoln on Wednesday night was moved to the Carmelo K. Anthony Basketball Center and changed to a “scrimmage” after a roof leak was discovered in the Carrier Dome.

It is unfortunate that the issue could not be resolved prior to the women’s game, but hopefully, the leaks will be sealed before the men’s basketball game tomorrow night. This isn’t the first roof leak at the new Dome either — there was one back in October as well. Syracuse.com’s Chris Carlson points out there were also needs for final/spot sealing after those leaks were discovered.
The No. 22 Orange’s home regular season opener will now be their match-up Sunday against Penn State, which was just announced on Wednesday morning. The game will take place at 2 p.m ET.
