Defense a constant message from Bozzella

It is no secret that this year’s Seton Hall women’s basketball team is able to score. After putting up more than 80 points just once last season, Tony Bozzella’s squad has already eclipsed that mark three times in just five games, including a 91-point outburst in the team’s opener against St. Peter’s on Nov. 10. While the offensive front for the Hall may be promising, Bozzella knows that his team will struggle if they are unable to...
