Terps, Seton Hall said to be close to a sched­ul­ing deal

Baltimore Sun - - SPORTS -

Mary­land is in the last stages of set­tling a home-and­home se­ries with Seton Hall of the Big East Con­fer­ence, per a FanRags re­port. The se­ries is ex­pected to be­gin Dec. 22 in Col­lege Park. The Terps’ away game at Pru­den­tial Cen­ter in Ne­wark, N.J., would be set for the 2019-20 sea­son. Mary­land, who leads the Pi­rates 2-1 in their three to­tal meet­ings, has never hosted Seton Hall at Xfin­ity Cen­ter. The Terps have not shared a court with the Pi­rates since 1975. The Pi­rates ad­vanced to the sec­ond round of the NCAA tour­na­ment this past sea­son, where they fell to No. 1 seed Kansas. It was Seton Hall’s third straight ap­pear­ance in the Big Dance. The pend­ing agree­ment adds a much-needed qual­ity op­po­nent to Mary­land’s rel­a­tively weak non­con­fer­ence sched­ule.
