Temple basketball to play 2017 Final Four participant South Carolina at Madison Square Garden

Temple basketball's non-conference schedule just got much tougher.

The Owls will play South Carolina, who reached the Final Four last season, Nov. 30 in the Under Armour Reunion at Madison Square Garden. Gametime and TV network will be announced next week.

The seventh-seeded Gamecocks reached their first-ever Final Four in 2017, before losing to Gonzaga. 

“We are excited to not only add another high-level program in South Carolina to our schedule but to again play in one of the most historic arenas in the country — Madison Square Garden,” Temple head coach Fran Dunphy said. “This should be a tremendous game for college basketball fans and I want to thank Under Armour for including Temple in this event.”

Add South Carolina to an already tough Owls' schedule that includes Wichita State, Wisconsin and Villanova.
