Iowa, Seton Hall to play in Gavitt Games

IOWA CITY — The Big Ten and Big East Conferences jointly announced on Friday the pairings and dates for the 2022 Gavitt Tipoff Games, which include Iowa traveling to New Jersey to face Seton Hall on Nov. 16.

The Gavitt Tipoff Games, featuring eight games between the two historic conferences Nov. 14-18, is a unique early-season series named in honor of Dave Gavitt, founder of the Big East.

This will be Iowa’s fourth contest in the Gavitt Games, previously playing at Marquette (2015), and hosting Seton Hall (2016) and DePaul (2019).

The Hawkeyes and Pirates have previously met twice before. Iowa beat Seton Hall (85-63) on Dec. 29, 1982, in the Rochester Classic in Rochester, N.Y., while the Pirates defeated the Hawkeyes (91-83) on Nov. 17, 2016, in Iowa City.

Tip times and television information will be released at a later date. Games will be televised on either FS1 or BTN.
