— The NC State women's basketball had it season come to a close with a 72-66 setback at James Madison in the second round of the Postseason Women's NIT on Sunday.

Len'Nique Brown led NC State (17-17) with 13 points, and Markeisha Gatling and Myisha Goodwin-Coleman added 12 points apiece.

Marissa Kastanek scored nine points in her final game with the Wolfpack, and finishes with 1,655 career points, and 240 three-pointers. Those figures rank eighth and second, respectively in school history.

Brown gave NC State a 43-42 lead midway through the second half, but James Madison exploded with an 18-4 run over a six-minute stretch that put the game out of reach for the Wolfpack.

Goodwin-Coleman got State to within four, 70-66 with a shot from downtown, but with only 20 seconds left the Pack ran out of time.

NC State shot 45.1 percent for the game, and nearly 58 percent in the second half. The visitors led by four points on three occasions in the second half, the final time after a Kastanek bucket with just under 12 minutes to play, up 42-38.

Tarik Hislop paced James Madison (24-10) with a game-high 19 points, while Toia Giggetts added 16 points. The Dukes shot 39.1 percent for the game, but held a 41-38 rebound advantage, including 16-8 on the offensive glass.

The first half was a tightly-contested affair with neither team leading by more than five points. The lead changed hands on nine occasions and the score was tied twice in the first 20 minutes.

NC State pulled ahead by four points, 6-2, in the early minutes as Gatling went to work down low with two buckets. The Pack still led 20-18 after Goodwin-Coleman's second three-pointer of the half at the 5:29 mark.

The Wolfpack, however, missed its final four shots of the stanza, allowing the Dukes to take a 25-20 lead with under a minute until intermission. Goodwin-Coleman snapped the scoring drought by converting 1-of-2 free throws in the final seconds to cut the JMU lead to 25-21 at the break. Both teams shot 32.0 percent from the floor in the first half.
