Fuquan Edwin scored 18 points, including a 3-pointer with 8.9 seconds left, to give Seton Hall a 66-65 victory over Villanova Monday night.

The victory snapped the Pirates' (14-15, 3-13 Big East) nine-game losing streak and was just the second win in their last 15 tries.

The loss snapped a three-game winning streak for Villanova (18-11, 9-7), as the Wildcats suffered a crushing blow as they try to secure an NCAA tournament bid.

With 13 seconds left, Edwin hit two free throws to draw the Pirates to within 65-63, then Tom Maayan made a steal and fed Edwin, who drained a 3-pointer that gave the Pirates the lead at 66-65 with 8.9 seconds left.

Villanova tried to get off a final shot, but Ryan Arcidiacono's fade away at the buzzer fell short, giving the Pirates the unlikely victory.
