    CLEMSON, S.C. - The NC State women's basketball team shot 60.9 percent in the second half to bring home a 63-47 victory at Clemson on Sunday in the final game of the regular season.

    NC State (15-15, 7-11 ACC) will face Clemson for a third time this season when the two meet in the first round of the ACC Tournament on Thursday, Mar. 7, at 2 p.m., in Greensboro, N.C., at the Greensboro Coliseum.

    Len'Nique Brown, Markeisha Gatling and Myisha Goodwin-Coleman each scored 14 points to pace another balanced attack for the Wolfpack. Lakeesa Daniel hauled in a career-high 11 rebounds, while Brown once again led in assists with six.

    NC State opened the second half the same way it ended the first with a 9-4 run to lead 35-25 after a Brown three-pointer at 16:31.

    Clemson worked back to within two, but Goodwin-Coleman drained consecutive shots from downtown to increase the lead back to 47-37 midway through the second stanza.

    After a Tigers timeout, NC State got a stop on defense, and Goodwin-Coleman made her third-straight trey at the other end to give the Pack its largest lead at that point, 50-37.

    Gatling would convert an old-fashioned three-point play to increase the lead to 56-40, and Marissa Kastanek made one free throw after a Clemson technical foul to increase the advantage to a game-high 17 points with five minutes left.

    The Pack made 14-of-23 shots in the second half, and 44.4 percent for the game, while Clemson finished at 33.9 percent for the game.

    NC State did another great job defending the three-point line, limiting Clemson to 2-of-15 shooting from downtown. The last four Wolfpack opponents have shot a combined 4-for-50 from beyond the arc.

    Aisha Turner led Clemson (9-20, 5-13 ACC) with 14 points. Quinyotta Pettaway and Nikki Dixon each added 11 points.

    A low scoring first half saw the game tied 17-all, before NC State put together a 9-4 run over the final 4:21 to take a 26-21 lead at intermission.

    Brown had seven points in the opening half, including two buckets in the final minute before intermission.
