The Seton Hall men's bas­ketball team will participate in the 2012 Naismith Hall of Fame Tip-Off at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn., according to a press release.

The tournament is hosted by the Metro Atlantic Athletic Con­ference and is set for the weekend of November 16-18.

In addition to Seton Hall, the other teams scheduled to take part are Loyola University Maryland, Norfolk State University, Ohio State University, University of Albany, University of Missouri-Kansas, University of Rhode Is­land and University of Washing­ton.

The bracket in which the Hall will play, named the Naismith bracket, features Ohio State, Rhode Island, and Washington, the only major conference teams participating.

"This is a great opportunity for our program to participate in one of the marquee early season events on the national calendar," said Seton Hall head coach Kevin Willard. "We're proud to be a part of a tournament that cele­brates the tradition and history of our sport."

This season, the team finished in second place at the Charleston Classic in South Carolina, where they went 2-1.
