The Syracuse Orangemen and Houston Cougars have played one basketball. The game was in 1982 against Houston's famed 'Phi Slamma Jamma' team with Clyde Drexler and Akeem Olajuwon. Syracuse would win the game 92-87. The Cougars would go on to lose the National Championship that spring in the famous upset by Jim Valvano's North Carolina Wolfpack.
