After the Taurean Thompson nonsense, I doubt SU wants to do any favors for Seton Hall. I like playing all the old Big East teams, but there are probably easier ways for SU to get in front of fans in the tri-state area than gifting Seton Hall a big gate in Newark, so I'm cool with snubbing them.
I'd like to play PC @ MSG one year instead of uconn. Their fans would probably turn out well for it. I think Seton Hall would be a decent team to play @MSG as well. We need extra games at MSG. I'd even consider moving one ACC game a year to MSG (like Wake or GT not a marquee one.)
No reason to give the Hall a home and home and play in Newark after the Thompson situation.
Not related but I hope we never schedule games at Barclays center again.
Oddly, St. John’s needs us to get an OOC game in MSG. Pretty sure we each played one OOC game in MSG last year. We played UConn and they played Iona. I think all their other OOC games were at Carnesecca or neutrals.

By and large Georgetown, St. Johns and Nova are our best rivalries. Both a high number of games played and relatively evenly matched over the years. UConn and Pitt may fall into the next tier as the win loss differential is nearly 20 games in each case.
Seton Hall and Providence were absolutely one-sided for most of the history of the matchup.
Biggest surprise for me was that we have played Penn State more than 100 times over the years. Especially when you consider that 95% of those matchups must have occurred prior to 1980.
I remember we played Penn State three times one year in the 70s. IIRC we used to schedule home and homes with them but this year we met them in a holiday tournament too. I see if I find the proof... thought it was in the early 70s
