Women’s basketball riding mid-season surge

Staying positive seemed like a difficult endeavor for the Seton Hall women’s basketball program less than a month ago. After a home loss to Villanova on Jan. 12, the Pirates were 2-5 in Big East play, not playing to their potential while the top half of conference standings were fading from view.
