  • The Big East is intelligently sticking with their 5-game New Year's Eve marathon that will air on FOX Sports 1. It makes the opening day of the schedule unique and sets the conference apart from some of their competitors.
  • Seton Hall will host St. John's at Prudential Center on New Year's Eve after traveling up to Providence last year. The cross-river rivalry is a lot more attractive match-up for the Hall, for obvious reasons. The Red Storm swept Seton Hall last season on the court by a combined two points while the two schools have been direct recruiting rivals for guys like Isaiah Whitehead and now Isaiah Briscoe. Attendance, TV ratings, etc. should all be up compared to last year.
  • The rest of the N.Y.E. marathon includes Butler at Villanova (2:30), Marquette at DePaul (5:00), Creighton at Providence (7:30), and Georgetown at Xavier (10:00).
  • 13 of Seton Hall's 18 conference games will air on FOX Sports 1. Five contests will air on a combination of FSN and CBS Sports Network.
  • The Big East is pushing a 'Tuesday Showdown' double-header format that sees Seton Hall featured three times (1/13, Butler @ SHU; 2/3 SHU @ DePaul; 2/10 Georgetown @ SHU)
  • It looks like the Big East is going to have a flex-option for airing a game on their flagship channel, FOX, on the final day of the season. The Hall travels to Georgetown on that date.
  • Seton Hall has one three-game road trip (Providence, Villanova, St. John's), just like season (Marquette, Georgetown, St. John's).
  • Unlike last season, the Pirates will not have any three-game homestands.
