PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Villanova will be on the road tonight, visiting the Seton Hall Pirates in Big East action.

The Wildcats are 18-10 on the season and 9-6 in the Big East and they come into this game fresh off a 60-56 win over Now-#22 Marquette on Saturday.  That was their third-straight win and fifth in their last six games.

Seton Hall is 13-15 overall on the season, but conference play has been painful for the Pirates.  They are just 2-13 in Big East games this season and they bring a nine-game losing streak into this one.

This series has been dominated by Villanova as of late, the Wildcats have won the last ten games between the two schools and all-time, the Wildcats lead the series 64-37

Sophomore forward JayVaughn Pinkston continues to pace Villanova in scoring at 12.6 points a game.

Seton Hall is being led these days by junior forward Fuquan Edwin and his 16.9 points per game.

KYW’s Matt Leon spoke to the Inquirer’s Joe Juliano about tonight’s match-up.
