In a renewal of last year’s game against South Carolina at the Garden, Seton Hall will take on Temple in the 2017 Under Armour Reunion.

It’s hard to see the Owls (16-16, 7-11) in the Final Four like Seton Hall’s opponent last December, but veteran head coach Fran Dunphy returns most of his team along with senior point guard Josh Brown, who was granted a medical redshirt after tearing his achilles tendon.
Temple leads the all-time series — which dates back to 1953-54 — with six wins to Seton Hall’s three. The Owls have won the last two meetings since 1999-00 including a 62-56 smothering of the Hall at the Liacouras Center in Kevin Willard’s first game at the helm back in November of 2010.
Seton Hall’s non-conference schedule is still a couple home games away from completion and now looks like this:
