Maryland basketball nearing deal to meet Seton Hall in home-and-home series, per report

Maryland is in the last stages of settling a home-and-home 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.

Kevin Anderson, who resigned April 13 and is the interim athletic director at Cal State Northridge, is one of five finalists scheduled to interview this week with the Bulldogs.

Maryland, which 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.
