Jan. 13, 2014
RALEIGH, N.C. – Following a 62-54 win at Atlantic Coast Conference opponent Wake Forest Sunday afternoon, the NC State women’s basketball team (15-2, 2-1 ACC) retained its ranking of 20th in the country Monday in the latest Associated Press Top-25 poll.
State received 183 votes in this week’s poll, 19 more than it received one week ago.
Off to its best start since the 1999-00 team began the year 15-2, State has seen great success under the leadership of new head coach Wes Moore and his staff. The Wolfpack has defeated two top-20 teams (LSU and Syracuse), has won nine of its last 10 games, and is off to a 2-1 start in league play for the first time since 2007.
Monday’s ranking marks the second straight week and the 328th week in program history during which the team has been ranked in the AP poll.
NC State is next in action on Thursday at home against Florida State (currently No. 17 in AP poll). The Wolfpack and Seminoles will tip off from Reynolds Coliseum beginning at 7 p.m. The game will be broadcast live on ESPN3 with James Alverson and Wolfpack legend Chasity Melvin calling the action.
