South Orange, NJ – The 2022 ESPN Events Invitational bracket has been revealed and the Seton Hall men’s basketball team will face Memphis at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 24 at the State Farm Field House at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex near Orlando, Fla.

The Thanksgiving game marks the fifth all-time meeting between the Pirates and the Tigers. Seton Hall last played in Memphis on November 21, 2008 at the Puerto Rico Tip-Off. The Pirates’ only victory in the series was a 103-71 victory on January 22, 1953 at the Walsh Gymnasium. Three of the four meetings took place on neutral ground.

The two teams that remain undefeated throughout will face off in a league match on Sunday, November 27.
