Villanova (9-1 overall, 4-0 BIG EAST) was led by Collin Giillespie (22 points) and Jermaine Samuels (20 points and nine rebounds).

Samuels provided that lift after having been sidelined for the duration of the ‘Cats most recent COVID-19 pause. The Wildcats last played on Dec. 23 at Marquette.

“I didn’t have any expectations – I just wanted to see what happened,” Wildcats head coach Jay Wright said. “There was some good, some bad. It’s great to get a win. I’m happy for our guys. Seton Hall is a very good team. I’m happy that we survived.

“I am truly amazed by Jermaine Samuels. He literally practiced one day. Had Covid and couldn’t practice until (Monday). To come out and be able to play like that is truly incredible. Collin Gillespie had four days of practice and played 38 minutes. Those guys’ stamina and Cole hitting a big free throw at the end was huge.”
