Seton Hall has added the Delaware Blue Hens to their nearly complete 2016-17 non-conference schedule.

If Delaware sounds familiar, that’s because leading scorer and floor general Kory Holden (17.7 ppg, 4.2 apg) has left the team and visited the Hall before deciding on South Carolina.
Starting ‘four’ Marvin King-Davis (14.8 ppg, 9 rpg) has graduated from a 7-23 (2-16) team that prompted the firing of 10th-year head coach Monte Ross, while injury-plagued Chivarsky Corbett (9 ppg, 5.8) has also decided to transfer; Delaware is still without a head coach after axing theirs during the first round of the NCAA tournament and following this hiring timeline.
This will probably be chalked up as a cupcake next year, but it does help fill out Seton Hall’s schedule and add another home game, though not an overly-attractive one. The deal does not include a return game in Newark, Delaware.
The slate (11 games):
Fairleigh Dickinson – opener at Walsh
November 16 – @Iowa (Gavitt Games)
November 24-27 – AdvoCare Classic (Gonzaga, Miami, Iowa State, Stanford, Ind. St., Quinn.)
Early December – Potential game on West Coast before Hawaii
December 7 – Pearl Harbor armed forces event vs. California
December 12 – South Carolina @ MSG – Under Armour event
Mid-December – Rutgers
