JERSEY CITY, N.J. Ė Saint Peter’s College and Seton Hall University will play an historic men’s and women’s basketball doubleheader on Hall of Fame Day at the Jersey City Armory on Saturday, December 13, 2008.  The women’s teams will face-off at 12:00 p.m., followed by the men’s teams battling at 2:00 p.m.


The women’s squads will meet for the 15th time since the series began on February 14, 1972, a 56-27 Saint Peter’s victory.  Seton Hall holds a 10-4 all-time record and has won the latest meeting between the two squads, 59-56 at the Yanitelli Center on February 13, 2007. This will be the Peahens' first-ever game played at the Jersey City Armory.


The men’s teams will meet for the 80th time, which is the fourth longest rivalry in Saint Peter’s men’s basketball history.  Since the 1951-52 season, the Peacocks and the Pirates have played each one time a year every season, except for the 1970-71 season.  Seton Hall holds a 56-23 record against Saint Peter’s.  The last time that the two squads met in Jersey City was on February 16, 1988, a 79-70 Seton Hall win.


This is the second straight season that Saint Peter’s will host a Big East team at the Armory, as they defeated Rutgers, 65-58 on November 30, 2007.  That game was the first college basketball game played at the Jersey City Armory since Saint Peter’s moved all their games to the Yanitelli Center in 1975.
