The first game between the two will be played in Louisville this December.
Former Louisville assistant Kevin Willard and his Seton Hall Pirates will visit the KFC Yum Center this December for the first game of a home-and-home deal agreed to by the two programs. U of L will visit the Prudential Center for the return game in 2018-19.
After missing the NCAA tournament for a decade, Seton Hall has now appeared in back-to-back Big Dances. The next step for the Pirates will be to win a game in the tournament for the first time since 2004.
That could easily happen next season, as Willard figures to field a team that could begin its campaign ranked in the preseason top 25. Much of that hinges on the status of big man Angel Delgado, who is currently debating a jump to the NBA. If Delgado does return for his senior season, then the Pirates will return the overwhelming majority of the production from a team that went 21-12 in 2016-17.
Louisville is 13-5 all-time against Seton Hall and has won five consecutive games in the series.
