Seton Hall vs Villanova Preview
When Seton Hall and Villanova meet up Saturday, it will be the Big East’s top two teams clashing in front of a sellout crowd of 20,000 plus on Saturday at Wells Fargo Center.
Seton Hall has been a nice surprise this season, racing out to 17-5 overall record and 9-1 conference mark.
“They’re the front-runners in the conference,” Villanova coach Jay Wright said. “I think they’re one of the best teams in the country.”
While Wright understands the massive hype for the game, he isn’t putting isn’t putting too much stock in the result.
“There’s going to be a next game after that,” Wright said told the Philadelphia Inquirer. “In this league, you don’t get quality points for beating Seton Hall. It’s a win if you win. And in the same sense, it’s not a bad loss. You can recover and come back, and you’ve got to be ready for the next game. So we really do take the next-game mentality. You can’t put too much on any game in this conference.”
The Wildcats are in need of a bounce back win after dropping their last two games consecutively — first to Creighton and then to Butler.
“We’ve just been inconsistent,” Wright said. “We were good in that area earlier and we’ve just slipped up, we’ve kind of lost some toughness, physicality. So we’ve just got to change our scheme a little bit in terms of how we defend those post-ups and isolation drives.”
Seton Hall are 5-0 on the road in conference play this season, their lone conference loss coming to Xavier back on Feb. 1.
“It’s a huge game but I think at this time of year, more than anything, every game’s a big game,” he said. “So I think our guys are excited. What I love about this group more than anything is that, I think they’ve been excited to go out and battle every night so far, whether it’s ‘Nova, Creighton, Georgetown.
“I just think that the middle of February in this conference, it’s the most exciting time for college basketball. So I think they’re excited just to go out and compete again, and obviously compete against the best program in the conference for the last five years.”
Villanova is a 3.5-point favorite at home for the matchup, which features a total of 141. The under is 10-5 in the last 15 games in the matchup, according to Odd Shark.
