— The NC State women’s basketball team broke the 100-point threshold for the first time in fifteen years behind double-figure scoring from eight different players, as the Wolfpack defeated Longwood, 102-49, Thursday evening at Reynolds Coliseum.

The last time the Pack reached triple-digit scoring was Nov. 18, 1997, when it scored 105 against visiting Charleston Southern .

“I’m pleased with our execution,” said head coach Kellie Harper. “Our team has really been focused on NC State. I thought we had a good mindset in this game and did things the way we wanted to do them.”

NC State was led by junior forward Breezy Williams, who posted a team-high 14 points and nine rebounds, while senior guard Marissa Kastanek and junior center Markeisha Gatling chipped in 13 points apiece.

“We’ve talked to her about not complicating things and just making the game as easy as possible,” Harper said of Williams after the game. “She’s knocking down her jumpers, she got to the free-throw line and she played strong. That’s what we need from her.”

Junior Kody Burke just missed on her second double-double of the season, posting 12 points and nine rebounds. Redshirt sophomore Len’Nique Brown also added 12 points, seven rebounds and three assists off the bench, while sophomore guard Krystal Barrett and freshman Ashley Eli poured in 11 points and pulled down four rebounds each on the night. Barrett’s scoring effort was also a career-best.

Sophomore forward Kiana Evans rounded out the Pack’s double-digit scorers with 10 points, and contributed seven rebounds, three steals and two assists.

“We were aggressive on the offensive end,” Harper commented. “We like the ball in our point guards’ hands. I think the versatility with our guards is really good.”

Kastanek supported Harper’s reflection on the all-around performance.

“We’re a really good team when we go inside-out,” Kastanek stated. “It makes it a lot easier to play in the offense when it’s inside-out because it opens more things up.

“We’ve been playing together so well as a team. We know our roles. I know what my role is and we’re doing a good job playing to our strengths.”

Leading 29-22 with 9:30 remaining in the first half, the Pack closed out the first half on a 22-2 run, while holding the Lancers scoreless for the next 8:15. Longwood (0-2) was held without a single field goal for the duration of the 20-point swing, as NC State outscored Longwood 36-2 in the paint and 19-0 off the bench in the period.

The remainder of the contest was well in hand, as the Pack went on to outscore the Lancers 83-27 from the nine-and-a-half-minute mark in the first half through the final buzzer. The Wolfpack shot 35-of-77 (.455) from the floor and 27-of-37 (.730) from the free-throw line, while holding Longwood to a 16-of-58 (.276) clip from the field, and a 9-of-29 (.310) performance from three-point range on the night.

Chelsea Coward led the Lancers with a career-high 29 points.

NC State (3-0) will remain at home before taking on Charleston Southern next Tuesday, Nov. 20 at 7 p.m., at Reynolds Coliseum.
