The Villanova Wildcats have been playing well of late, winning two straight contests to get to 9-9 in Big East play. Those wins came against Creighton and Xavier, both of which are impressive victories. But Villanova needs to keep stacking up wins if they want to get into the NCAA Tournament, including one in this game against Seton Hall.
Villanova already has a win over Seton Hall under their belt, in which they held the Pirates to 54 points at home. But things could be tougher for the Wildcats on the road, where they are just 4-8 on the season so far.
Seton Hall Pirates
Seton Hall has lost two straight games and four of their last five outings. Their lone win over that span came against lowly Georgetown, and Seton Hall needs to step up and beat a respectable foe in Villanova to help their tournament chances.
The offense of the Pirates has really struggled lately, breaking 65 points just once in their last five games. They need to find a scoring punch from somewhere, especially against a Villanova team that held them under 60 points earlier this season already.
