#10 NC State Finishes Regular Season with 70-68 Win Over #15 Miami

Published

on

This #10 NC State Women’s Basketball team closed out their regular season tonight with a gritty 70-68 victory over #15 Miami.

This team hasn’t made any excuses all year long, despite losing 4 players for the year, with 3 of them being starters. They just keep on grinding.

The Wolfpack trailed by 8 points at the break, but took the lead for good with 7:22 left in the game. NC State trailed for 23:41, and led for 11:32.

Senior DD Rodgers went out with a bang, scoring a career high 21 points in her final game in Reynolds Coliseum. She also chipped in 14 rebounds, resulting in her 4th double-double of the season.

Redshirt Graduate Senior Kiara Leslie had 12 points and 6 rebounds.

Freshman sensation Elissa Cunane chipped in 11 points and 5 boards.

Miami outshot NC State from the field and from three-point range, and also out-rebounded the Wolfpack, but stats don’t always beat heart, and they didn’t today.

The Wolfpack finished the regular season with a 25-4 record, and will enter the ACC Tournament as the #3 seed, marking the highest seeding since 2005 (also #3 seed). This marks only the 11th time in school history that NC State has won at least 25 games in a season, and three of those have come under head coach Wes Moore.

NC State earned a double-bye, and will play either Pitt, Duke or Florida State on Friday night at 8pm.

Published

Athlon released their 2019-20 College Basketball preview, and they predict that NC State’s Men’s Basketball team will finish 5th in the ACC this season.

  1. Duke
  2. Louisville

  5. NC State
  6. FSU
  7. Notre Dame
  8. Miami
  9. Syracuse
  10. Georgia Tech
  11. Clemson
  12. Boston College
  13. Wake Forest
  14. Pittsburgh
  15. Virginia Tech

Here’s a rundown of what they had to say about the Wolfpack.

  • Returning 6 of top 7 scorers from last year
  • Redshirt Junior D.J. Funderburk needs to rebound more consistently, and stay out of foul trouble.
  • The version of Senior Markell Johnson that finished the season will be needed for NC State to get back to the NCAA Tournament.
    • Needs to be a consistent leader and scorer.
  • Junior Braxton Beverly needs to figure out a way to run more hot than cold.
  • Consistency from Redshirt Junior Devon Daniels would go a long way.
  • Team should be back in the NCAA Tournament.
  • With a reloading year for Duke, UVA and UNC, Keatts will get few opportunities like this one.
