Syracuse guard Gene Waldron scored 40 points against Iona in a 109-92 win over the Gaels in the 1983 Carrier Classic.

The two teams met in the first round of the 1998 NCAA tournament in a close game the Orangemen barely won 63-61. That Gael team was coached by Tim Welsh, a former assistant coach to Jim Boeheim at Syracuse, from 1988 to 1991.
