No. 21 Seton Hall hopes to start Big East play 3-0 for the first time since 1998-99 when they clash with Butler at Hinkle Fieldhouse on Saturday.
It won’t be official, but Seton Hall (19-10, 9-8) can essentially lock up their second consecutive trip to the NCAA tournament with a win at No. 13 Butler (23-6, 12-5) on Saturday.
Seton Hall will have a chance to build momentum and notch a résumé-building win on Wednesday night when they host No. 11 Butler.
Winners of four straight, sitting third in the Big East and in the hunt for a ranking, Seton Hall (17-6, 7-4) hosts a Butler (16-7, 5-6) team that was once ranked before getting off to a slow start in league play.
