Villanova Vs Seton Hall: Struggling Wildcats Host Red Hot Pirates

The Villanova men's basketball team looks for a much-needed win on Wednesday, when the Wildcats host the Seton Hall Pirates.

The Villanova men's basketball team looks for a much-needed win on Wednesday, when the Wildcats host the Seton Hall Pirates (7 p.m., ESPNU).

Villanova has lost five out of six games, and not even the best performance of Maalik Wayns' career could change the Wildcats' losing ways. Wayns scored a career-high 39 points and added 13 rebounds for his first career double-double on Saturday afternoon, but Villanova still fell 82-78 to Cincinnati. The 39 points were the most scored by a Villanova player since Scottie Reynolds poured in 40 against Seton Hall in Jan., 2010.

Seton Hall had been red-hot before running into South Florida on Friday. Pirates guard Jordan Theodore stepped to the free throw line with 3.8 seconds left and Seton Hall trailing 56-55, but he missed the front end of a one-and-one and South Florida held on to snap Seton Hall's four-game conference winning streak.
