NC State Women's Hoops Falls, 79-70, to Georgia Tech during Hoops 4 Hope

Posted February 17, 2013

— Despite a career-high 30 points by junior guard Myisha Goodwin-Coleman, the NC State women’s basketball team was defeated, 79-70, by Georgia Tech in its eighth-annual Hoops 4 Hope game Sunday afternoon at Reynolds Coliseum.

“I’m disappointed in the outcome of the game, obviously, but it was such a great atmosphere and a great crowd that was into the game,” said head coach Kellie Harper. You hate to walk out of here with a loss, but Georgia Tech did what they needed to do.” {{image_gallery-1"}}

For an extended period of time, it appeared as though Goodwin-Coleman could not miss from beyond the three-point line, as she went on to finish 9-of-14 from long range and pulled down five rebounds in 23 minutes of playing time. Her nine three-point conversions were not only a personal-best, but also tied Jennifer Howard’s school record set against Syracuse in both 1995 and 1996.

“I just felt like I had the hot hand and my teammates got me the ball,” Goodwin-Coleman said. “[I had] a little space and I just let it go. I wish I could’ve hit three more and maybe sent the game to overtime.”

The Wolfpack had trouble getting the ball to fall into the hoop for the first eight-plus minutes of the game, and fell behind 24-6 to the Yellow Jackets. The Pack displayed outstanding resiliency over the subsequent 10 minutes, and used a 25-6 run, capped by a three-pointer by Goodwin-Coleman, to take a 31-30 lead with 1:34 left in the period.

“She can shoot and she’s a tough kid,” Harper said of Goodwin-Coleman. “When she makes one she can make three or four in a row. When she gets hot she can put the ball in the hole.”

The Wolfpack maintained that momentum and took a 34-32 lead into the locker room.

“We were getting stops,” Harper said. “Our defense was strong during that stretch. When you get stops they can’t press.”

NC State shot 40.6 percent on 13-of-32 shooting from the floor, and 5-of-12 (.417) from three-point range, while Georgia Tech was 12-of-27 (.444) from the field and just 1-of-6 (.167) from beyond the arc in the half.

From the first inbound pass to begin second half, the Yellow Jackets retaliated with an 18-9 run, and took a 52-42 lead with 12:20 remaining on the clock. The Wolfpack turned up its defensive effort one last time and cut the deficit to just three at 61-58, following a layup by Len’Nique Brown with 5:33 left to play, but Georgia Tech turned several NC State turnovers into fast-break baskets and tightened up its defense to close out the win.

“Our game plan in that second half was [to be] aggressive, and we looked very passive,” added Harper. There’s a difference between being passive and being careful with the basketball, and I thought we went too far. They were just a little bit sharper, defensively.”

Sydney Wallace scored 26 points and Tyaunna Marshall added 22 points, five rebounds, four assists and three steals to lead the Yellow Jackets.

The Pack finished the contest 26-of-66 (.394) from the field, 10-of-24 (.417) from three and 8-of-15 (.533) from the foul line. Georgia Tech shot 26-of-61 (.426) from the floor and 6-of-14 (.429) from beyond the arc, while shooting an efficient 21-of-29 (.724) from the free throw stripe.

NC State outscored the Yellow Jackets 42-10 off the bench and 21-13 in second chance points, but was outscored 21-7 on fast breaks.

The Wolfpack returns to action Thursday, Feb. 21, when it hosts Miami. The game is slated for a 7 p.m. tip-off at Reynolds Coliseum.
