Wichita State’s men’s basketball nonconference schedule is closer to completion.
The Shockers recently added Seton Hall for a Dec. 9 game at Koch Arena. WSU will play at Seton Hall’s Prudential Center in Newark, N.J., during the 2015-16 season.
Seton Hall, coached by Kevin Willard, went 17-17 last season, 6-12 in the Big East. Three of his top four scorers were seniors, including center Gene Teague, who started his career at Southern Illinois.
The Shockers will play Tulsa, Alabama and Saint Louis at home and travel to Detroit and play at Utah on Dec. 3. They play Memphis in Sioux Falls, S.D., on Nov. 18. WSU also plays in the Diamond Head Classic, beginning Dec. 22 in Honolulu, with Nebraska, Colorado, Ohio, DePaul, Loyola Marymount, Hawaii and George Washington.
Never miss a local story.
Adding Seton Hall means WSU is looking for two games, both home games, to complete its schedule.
WSU last played the Pirates in the 2006 NCAA Tournament, defeating them 86-66 in Greensboro, N.C.
