Opening Line (even), At Tip: Seton Hall +1.5

Two. That's the number of games the Seton Hall Pirates played as a ranked team (#24) this season. Unfortunately, it's also the number of games the Villanova Wildcats have lost at the Pavilion in their last 53 contests. Tonight, the Pirates will attempt to defeat the Wildcats at the Pavilion for the first time in almost 18 years. Whether a win tonight (in their only game of the week) gets Seton Hall back into the Top 25 is irrelevant, what matters most is a return to winning basketball.

With the schedule tightening up after a home date with Notre Dame next Wednesday, it's imperative the Pirates get back on the board with a W tonight. Still, there's no looking ahead for the Pirates right now, as the old adage goes, one game at a time. There's no better night to take that 'one game' and snap a whole bunch of streaks while doing so.

As always, Let's Go Hall!
