Villanova Stays Unbeaten at Home

Wildcats’ strong second half holds off Seton Hall

NCAA Basketball: Seton Hall at Villanova Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

Omari Spellman had another breakout game en route to Villanova's 92-76 victory over Seton Hall. Leading the charge for the Wildcats, he was automatic from behind the arc going 6-7 and pouring 26 points. Spellman also notched a double-double grabbing 11 rebounds.

Villanova whet the appetite for this Philly crowd, who started to chant “We Want Brady” after Villanova had the game in hand. But it didn’t start out this way. Through the first half, Seton Hall held tight against the No.1 team in the nation. On defense, Seton Hall showed no mercy around the rim, with key blocks being made by Ismael Sanogo. On offense Seton Hall shot the ball well, going 50%. However, Seton Hall turned the ball over three times and fouled Villanova eight more, this gave Villanova their opening.

Mikal Bridges had 17 points, Jalen Brunson racked up 21 points (6-12) with six assists. Eric Paschall ticked off almost everything in the box score. Donte Divincenzo chipped in another 13 points.

Seton Hall had major contributions from Desi Rodriguez with 20 points, Angel Delgado notched 18 points and 9 rebounds. Myles Powell chipped in 17 as well..
