Seton Hall has been a bit of a nemesis for third-ranked Villanova in recent years but hasn't posted a road win in the series since 1994. The Wildcats aim for their 15th straight home win over the Pirates when the rivals square off Monday in a rematch of last year’s Big East Tournament final.

Villanova has won three straight since suffering its first loss of the season - a 66-58 setback at Butler on Jan. 4. But coach Jay Wright is wary of a Seton Hall team that claimed last year’s conference tournament with a 69-67 win over the Wildcats - albeit behind 26 points and a game-winning shot from Isaiah Whitehead, who now is in the NBA.

"Everybody that kind of played off Whitehead last year has gotten better," Wright told the Philadelphia Inquirer. "I think they're more balanced. They shoot the 3 better. Everyone shoots the ball better.

They rebound extremely well, so I think they're an all-around better team." The Pirates haven’t lived up to that billing recently, dropping two straight - including a 65-61 defeat at Providence on Saturday.

BetOnline has the Villanova listed as 14-point favorites and the game's total is sitting at 143.
