The win keeps alive the chance for an NCAA at-large bid for Villanova (17-10, 8-6 Big East), which has won four of its last five. The Wildcats overcame a poor first half and a 12-point second-half deficit.

Myles Mack had a game-high 24 points for Rutgers (13-12, 4-10), which has lost eight of its last nine games.

Rutgers played without leading scorer Eli Carter, who fractured his right fibula in Saturday’s loss at DePaul. Carter, who averaged 14.9 points per game, will miss the rest of the season.

Mouphtaou Yarou had 12 rebounds and 10 points for Villanova, which had five players score in double figures. James Bell added 11 points.
