Villanova Wildcats (Away)

Head Coach: Jay Wright {Overall: 22-7 | Conference: 11-5, T-2nd in Big East}

With an NCAA Tournament bid pretty much guaranteed, the Villanova Wildcats look to keep their Big East regular-season title hopes alive.

With two games remaining in the regular season, the Wildcats need to win out and have Seton Hall lose their next two to clinch a share of first place in the conference.

After Wednesday’s game against the Pirates, Villanova closes out the season against the black and blue Georgetown Hoyas, making a 2-0 finish a reasonable possibility.

The Wildcats feature a balanced starting line-up with double-digit scoring averages at each spot, while also possessing a deadly three-point attack, averaging 9.8 makes from long distance per game.

Although having three-point gunners like Saddiq Bey and Collin Gillespie is a nice luxury to have, coach Jay Wright will need to ensure his team does not become overly reliant on that offensive approach.

Seton Hall Pirates (Home)

Head Coach: Kevin Willard {Overall: 21-7 | Conference: 13-3, 1st in Big East}

The Seton Hall Pirates are enjoying one of their best seasons in program history, as they have guaranteed themselves at least a share of their third Big East regular-season title. Currently projected as a two-seed by bracketologists, the Pirates still have a chance to move up one more spot with a strong close to the regular season and a deep run in the Big East Tournament.

Kevin Willard’s Pirates have leaned heavily on experience, with a rotation dominated by upperclassmen who include leading scorer Myles Powell, playmaker Quincy McKnight, and shot blocker Romaro Gill.

With such a well-rounded group, New Jersey’s top college basketball team should be well equipped for their first serious March Madness run since 2000, when they lost in the Sweet 16 to Oklahoma State under former coach Tommy Amaker.

Villanova vs Seton Hall Basketball All-Time Series

These longtime Big East rivals have played each other 105 times prior to Wednesday’s game, the most times either school has faced off against any opponent.

Villanova holds a commanding 68-37 lead over Seton Hall, however, despite the long history between these schools, their first game this season was the first time ever where they were both ranked in the AP poll. Seton Hall won that game on February 8th 70-64.

Facing a ranked Seton Hall team on the road has been an unpleasant experience over the years for Villanova, as the Wildcats have not won such a game since 1992.

Head-to-Head: Jeremiah Robinson-Earl (NOVA) vs Romaro Gill (HALL)

Jeremiah Robinson-Earl

Forward | 6-9, 232lb | Bishop Miege HS | Overland Park, KS | Freshman

10.5 PPG | 1.9 APG | 9.4 RPG | 1.1 SPG | 0.6 BPG | 2.3 TOV | .447 FG% | .310 3P%

A highly regarded recruit out of Kansas, Jeremiah Robinson-Earl quickly established himself as a key piece for the Wildcats.

In addition to being one of the best rebounders in the Big East, Robinson-Earl is a solid finisher around the basket and has a reliable jumper that is effective from mid-range and beyond the arc.

He has been relatively quiet as a scorer the last five games after stringing together six straight double-digit scoring games earlier in Big East play. Look for that to change down the line as the role grows in March.

Romaro Gill

Center | 7-2, 255lb | St. Thomas HS | St. Thomas, Jamaica | Senior

7.8 PPG | 0.1 APG | 5.7 RPG | 0.3 SPG | 3.4 BPG | 1.1 TOV | .636 FG% | .000 3P%

At seven-foot-two, it is no surprise that Romaro Gill is one of college basketball’s best rim protectors.

The big Jamaican ranks third in the country in blocked shots and blocks per game, behind only Florida’s Osasumwen Osaghae (3.8) and Oregon State’s Kylor Kelley (3.5).

Some of his best performances have come against legitimate national title contenders, as he logged a six-block outing against Maryland and tallied five against Michigan State.

Most importantly, Gill has done a good job of keeping himself out of foul trouble, fouling out just three times this season.
