Well, I was hoping to have more LIU Brooklyn games to announce since the last scheduling update a couple of weeks ago but official announcements from other schools haven’t been as fast and furious as I was hoping. Fear not though as finally there is one new game to add to the 2013-14 LIU Brooklyn men’s basketball schedule.
Although there is no official announcement of this game yet, Chris McManus of the Seton Hall men’s basketball blog South Orange Juice unofficially announce Seton Hall’s non-conference schedule and LIU Brooklyn made the list of games the Pirates will be playing this season.
This would be the second consecutive season in which LIU and Seton Hall will play each other on the basketball court. Last season, these two teams played one another at the Barclays Center in the final game of the Brooklyn Hoops Holiday Invitational. Seton Hall went on to have a rather decisive win against the Blackbirds, 89-58.
According to the article written by McManus, he mentions that this game will be played at Seton Hall’s on-campus 2,600-seat Walsh Gymnasium in South Orange, New Jersey instead at Seton Hall’s regular home at the 18,500-seat Prudential Center in Newark. But the word I’m hearing is that isn’t going to be the case, that the game is planned to be played at the Prudential Center.
**UPDATE: 8/9 12:00pm:** Seton Hall has officially released their non-conference schedule. The game between LIU Brooklyn and Seton Hall will take place on Thursday, December 5th and the game will indeed be played in Newark at the Prudential Center.
So here is up-to-date “what we know” LIU Brooklyn MBB schedule:
@ Seton Hall – Thursday, December 5
TEMPLE – @ Barclays Center (Brooklyn Hoops Holiday Invitational) – Saturday, December 21
@ CCSU – Saturday, January 18
ST. FRANCIS (PA) – Saturday, February 8
@ Sacred Heart Thursday, February 13
@ St. Francis (PA) – Saturday, February 22
CCSU – Thursday, February 27
