NEWARK, N.J. (AP) -- Darrun Hilliard scored 19 points and No. 8 Villanova hit a dozen 3-pointers in an 83-67 victory over undermanned Seton Hall on Wednesday night.

JayVaughn Pinkston added 17 points, Ryan Arcidiacono had 14 and the Wildcats (14-1, 3-0 Big East) shot 52 percent from the field and 3-point range in beating Seton Hall (10-6, 1-2) for the 11th time in the last 12 games.

Villanova has shot at least 50 percent from the field in its last three games, and four of five.

Brian Oliver had 20 points to lead Seton Hall, which has lost two straight for the first time this season.

The Pirates played without swingman Fuquan Edwin, their second leading scorer, and Eugene Teague, their top rebounder. Edwin, who beat Villanova last season with a 3-pointer at the buzzer, has a knee injury. Teague missed his third straight game with a concussion.
