NC State Women’s Basketball Ranked 7th in ESPN’s Way-Too-Early Top-25

ESPN released their Way-Too-Early Preseason Top-25 rankings for Women’s College Basketball, and NC State ranks 7th as the reigning ACC champs.

The momentum the Wolfpack were riding after winning the ACC tournament a season ago would have made them one of the most intriguing teams in the NCAA tournament. Now they will have to carry that same momentum into a new season, and they can do it with most of their key personnel back. Elissa Cunane, a 6-5 center who is the ACC’s top rebounder (9.6 RPG) and sixth-leading scorer (16.4 PPG) a season ago, enters her junior year on the short list of national player of the year contenders. Seniors Kayla Jones (10.0 PPG) and Kai Crutchfield (7.5 PPG) and sophomores Jakia Brown-Turner (9.4 PPG) and Jada Boyd (7.5 PPG) make a balanced and versatile group. Brown-Turner has all-conference potential. If freshmen Dontavia Waggoner and Genesis Bryant give coach Wes Moore any production, the Wolfpack will once again be near the top of the ACC. — Creme (ESPN)
