NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - Freshman Khadeen Carrington hit a go-ahead layup with 1:38 to play in overtime and Seton Hall knocked off its second ranked foe this week, defeating No. 6 Villanova 66-61 on Saturday.

The Pirates ended the Wildcats' school-record-tying 13-game winning streak to start the season.

The Pirates (12-2, 2-0 Big East) upset No. 15 St. John's on Wednesday and came back to deny Villanova coach Jay Wright his 300th win with the Wildcats (13-1, 1-10).

Daniel Ocheful had a career day for Villanova with 19 points and 24 rebounds, personal bests. Darrun Hilliard added 14 points before fouling out.
