The 9th ranked NC State Women’s Basketball team beat Virginia Tech last night 76-69 to remain perfect, improving to 13-0. The Wolfpack is now 2-0 in ACC play.
Unlike many of their games thus far, a victory wasn’t a given, trailing with less than 3 minutes to play in the game.
If it wasn’t for Sophomore Center Elissa Cunane’s monster night, and their ability to turn turnovers into points.
Cunane tied a career high with 28 points (9-15 FG), scoring 23 of them in the second half.
Despite the fact that the Hokies out shot the Wolfpack in every area, and even out rebounded them, NC Stat turned 19 turnovers into 21 points.
Senior Guard Aislinn Konig also chipped in 18 points, draining 4 more three pointers.
Junior Forward Kayla Jones posted a double-double, with 11 points and 11 boards, and added 6 assists to boot.
NC State will host Virginia on Sunday at Noon.
