Published

on

The 9th ranked NC State Women’s Basketball team defeated #22 Florida State 69-62 last night in the Quarterfinals of the 2019 ACC Tournament.

Despite trailing by 4 points at the end of the first quarter, after taking the lead in the 2nd quarter, the Wolfpack never looked back. NC State led for 33:12 of the game.

Freshman Elissa Cunane, who was named to the ACC All-Freshman team earlier this week, led the Wolfpack with 22 points (8-13 FG) and 9 rebounds. Cunane has scored 20+ points in 6 games this year.

Senior DD Rogers posted a double-double for the second straight game (5th of career), with 16 points (6-8 FG) and 10 rebounds.

Junior Aislinn Konig and Redshirt Graduate Senior Kiara Leslie both chipped in double-figures, scoring 12 and 10 respectively.

The Wolfpack shot the ball better than the Seminoles, and won the rebounding and turnover battles.

For the second straight year, the Wolfpack will face #3 Louisville in the Semifinals of the ACC Tournament. The Cardinals crushed the Wolfpack 92-62 in their 1 regular season matchup this year on February 28th. Tip-off is at 2:30pm.

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

  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.
