— The NC State women's basketball suffered a 69-56 loss at Wake Forest Sunday afternoon at Joel Coliseum.

NC State (8-7, 0-3 ACC) was led by Kody Burke, who notched her fourth double-double of the season, 11th of her career, with 12 points and 11 rebounds, while Markeisha Gatling had 12 points and Marissa Kastanek added 11.

Chelsea Douglas paced Wake Forest (8-6, 1-1 ACC) with 21 points, two shy of her career high. Dearica Hamby added 15 points, and Lakevia Boykin and Asia Williams tossed in 13 and 12 points, respectively.

The difference in the game was Wake's ability to get out in the open floor and turn NC State miscues into points. The Demon Deacons scored 29 fast-break points, and converted 20 Wolfpack turnovers into 18 points.

The Deacs also entered the game as the worst free throw shooting team in the ACC. They went 13-of-19, and only missed four in the second half.

NC State was down 48-43 after Burke's second-chance bucket with 9:41 left, but Hemby made four-consecutive shots from the foul line, and later finished on the fast break to highlight a 10-2 spurt for a 58-45 lead with 6:29 to play. The Pack never cut its deficit under double figures the rest of the way.

Each team suffered through extended scoring droughts in the opening half that saw Wake Forest take a 32-28 lead into intermission.

Burke scored seven of the Pack's first nine points to knot the game 9-all after a free throw at the 15:51 mark of the first half. However, the Deacs ran off the next 13 points to control the tempo with a 22-9 advantage. A Lakeesa Daniel layup stemmed the run to end a nearly four-minute scoring drought.

The Daniel bucket fueled a 9-0 run for the Wolfpack, capped by a three-pointer from Myisha Goodwin-Coleman to cut the deficit to 22-18 with 9:13 on the first-half clock.

It was 24-20 after a Gatling bucket at the 8:08 mark, but again State would go five minutes, 47 seconds until Daniel made a jumper at the elbow to make it 27-22 Deacons.

But Wake wasn't much better at the other basket, getting just a pair of three-pointers from Douglas and a jumper from Boykin in the final seven minutes of the opening half.

Gatling proved to be a force in the paint for State, scoring nine first-half points, while Burke had seven points and seven rebounds at the break. Douglas had 11 to lead all scorers, while Boykin added nine for the Demon Deacons.
