— The NC State women’s basketball team had five double-figure scorers and recorded its largest margin of victory in an ACC game in 12 years, en route to a 79-45 victory over Clemson Sunday afternoon at Reynolds Coliseum.

The Wolfpack has now won four of its last five games with six contests remaining in the regular season.

Juniors Myisha Goodwin-Coleman and Breezy Williams led NC State (12-12, 4-8 ACC) with 12 points each, and sophomores Len’Nique Brown and Krystal Barrett added 11 points apiece.

“I felt like we shared the ball well,” said head coach Kellie Harper. “I told the team in the locker room that this was a really good team win.”

The Pack began with an 18-7 run in the first seven and a half minutes, and expanded the lead to as many as 13 points to take a 34-21 lead into halftime after Barrett scooped in a layup at the intermission buzzer.

Senior Marissa Kastanek, juniors Kody Burke and Lakeesa Daniel and Barrett each scored six points in the first half, as the team shot 13-of-37 (.351) from the field, 4-of-12 (.333) from three-point range and 4-of-5 (.800) from the free throw stripe. The Tigers shot just 31 percent on 9-of-29 shooting and did not connect on a three-point basket in the period.

“The word I put on the board for today’s game was focus,” Harper said. “Even if we got ahead early, I wanted them to focus. I thought if we maintained out focus, we would finish strong.”

The Wolfpack did just that.

NC State exploded out of the gates in the second half, racing out on a 25-4 run in the first eight and a half minutes to extend its lead to 59-25. The run was sparked by several fast-break layups and a trio of three-pointers – two from Goodwin-Coleman and one by Barrett.

The Pack went on to shoot 16-of-35 (.457) from the field and 6-of-11 (.545) from beyond the arc in the second half, while holding the Tigers to just five field goals in the period.

Junior center Markeisha Gatling added seven points and a game-high 12 rebounds for the Wolfpack and Daniel contributed season-highs in points (10), rebounds (8) and field goals made (5) in 20 minutes off the bench.

NC State outscored Clemson, 36-10, in the paint, 25-8 off turnovers, 24-12 on second-chance opportunities, 12-2 on fast-break points and 38-12 off the bench in the game.

Clemson (6-17, 2-10 ACC) was led by Nikki Dixon, who led all scorers with 15 points, while adding five rebounds and three blocks, and Quinyotta Pettaway added 10 points and nine rebounds.

For the game, the Wolfpack shot 29-of-72 (.403) overall, 10-of-23 (.435) from three-point range, and 11-of-17 (.647) from the foul line. The Tigers were 14-of-53 (.264) from the field, 1-of-6 (.167) from three and 16-of-20 (.800) from the free throw stripe. The Pack’s 10 three-pointers also matched a season-high set against Auburn in November.

“We’re playing with a lot more confidence now,” Harper said. “We haven’t changed a lot schematically, but our players are starting to understand what they have to do to be successful. Our players are playing more mature.”

The last time the Wolfpack defeated an ACC opponent by 34 points was Feb. 8, 2001 at Wake Forest.

Up next for the NC State is a trip to Tallahassee, Fla., to face Florida State on Thursday, Feb. 14. Opening tip is scheduled for 7 p.m.
