N.C. State needed a win over an opponent from a big-time conference to keep its momentum going, and the Wolfpack got one.

Bonae Holston (pictured) had 20 points and Nikitta Gartrell added 13 in an impressive 68-57 win over Big East member Seton Hall at Reynolds Coliseum.

Both teams are now 8-5. The victory assured the Wolfpack a winning regular-season record against non-conference opposition this season.

Nicole Emery had 19 points to lead Seton Hall, while Kandice Green added 15 points and 10 rebounds and Ebonie Williams 10 points.

The Wolfpack’s next game is on Wednesday at Southern California, with the next home game on Jan. 4 against Columbia.
