NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - Seton Hall has opened another section at the Prudential Center to meet the demand for more tickets for its game against No. 1 Villanova on Feb. 18.

The Big East Conference school announced Thursday that attendance for game could reach 16,000 with the opening of the 200 level seats at the arena.

More than 14,000 tickets have been sold, making it the biggest crowd for a Pirates game at Prudential Center.

The lower bowl of the arena, which has a capacity of 10,353, exhausted its ticket availability in late November. The athletics department then opened the 100 level seats for a game that will pit the defending Big East champion Pirates against the defending NCAA champion Wildcats.
