Redshirt Graduate Senior Kiara Leslie (CJ Leslie’s Sister) and Freshman Elissa Cunane. Leslie was also named to the All-Defensive Team.

Cunane is only the 6th player in school history to earn All-Freshman Team honors.

Leslie is the 21st Wolfpack player to earn 1st Team honors.

Also named to the Wade Trophy Watch List for the best player in college basketball, Leslie ranks 11th in the ACC in scoring (15.8 points per game) and 12th in the ACC in rebounding (7.3 rebounds per game). She has scored 10+ points in a single game on 26 occasions, 20+ points in a single game on seven occasions, and 30+ points in a single game twice. She has led or tied for the team lead in scoring 12 times this season and has notched eight double-doubles.

Cunane recently picked up her fourth ACC Rookie of the Week award on March 4 and is in the midst of a fantastic freshman season. For the season, Cunane is averaging 13.1 points and 5.6 rebounds per game while shooting 129-of-228 (.566) from the field. Among active players on the roster, she is the most accurate free-throw shooter at a success rate of 118-of-157 (.752). With 379 points so far this season, her scoring total currently ranks seventh among all freshmen in program history. Her shooting percentage so far ranks as the third-best mark among all freshmen in program history. (GoPack)

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

  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.
