NEW YORK - The Seton Hall men's basketball team has drawn a home matchup with the Texas Longhorns in the third installment of the BIG EAST-Big 12 Battle, the conference office announced Wednesday. The game will take place on Thursday, Dec. 9 at Prudential Center with game time and television assignment to be determined.

Seton Hall has appeared in this event once so far, falling at Iowa State back on Dec. 8, 2019. Last season, the Pirates were scheduled to host Baylor at Prudential Center, but the game was canceled due to COVID-19 issues.

This will be the fourth all-time game between Seton Hall and Texas on the hardwood. The Longhorns lead the series, 2-1. The last game played occurred at the Meadowlands on Dec. 4, 2004, when the 18th ranked Longhorns won, 70-62.

So far in the two seasons of BIG EAST-Big 12 battles, the BIG EAST has won 11 of 15 matchups, including an 8-2 mark in 2019-20. The two conference split six games in 2020-21 with four matchups having been canceled due to COVID-19.
