Saturday will bring us a competitive Big East battle in Newark, NJ, as the No. 24 Seton Hall Pirates play host to the UConn Huskies.
Seton Hall (10-3, 1-2 Big East) ended a two-game losing streak and got its first conference win of the season on Tuesday with a 71-56 victory over Butler.

Bryce Aiken had 12 points and seven assists.
UConn (10-3, 1-1 Big East) also got its first conference on Tuesday when going into Milwaukee and downing Marquette 78-70.
