PHILADELPHIA (Ticker) -- Sixteenth-ranked Villanova hits the road for the first time this season when it visits Pennsylvania on Tuesday.

After four straight wins at home to open the season, Villanova has earned its last two wins in Philadelphia as part of the Philly Classic.

Reggie Redding had 11 points and a career-high 12 rebounds - seven on the offensive end, which helped Villanova make up for shooting 2-of-15 from the arc.

After enduring a 12-point loss to Penn State, the Quakers dropped a 73-63 decision to Albany on Sunday.
