RALEIGH, N.C. - NC State looks to stay on the winning side of things this Sunday afternoon at Georgia Tech beginning at 2 p.m., on ESPN3.
Fresh off a 58-39 victory over Virginia Tech on Thursday, the Pack will look to earn a win in Atlanta for the first time since 2005 at the remodeled McCamish Pavilion.
Myisha Goodwin-Coleman was the Wolfpack’s top scorer last time out with 12 points, while Marissa Kastanek added 10. Both players, along with Ashley Eli, connected on a pair of three-pointers against the Hokies as the club shot a season-best 58.3 percent (7-of-12) from beyond the arc.
Kastanek has been hot from three-point range, making 19 in the last seven games, and is shooting 38.9 percent for the season, the sixth best mark in the ACC and 47th nationally. She also enters Sunday just 19 points shy of 1,500 for her career.
Meanwhile, the Yellow Jackets have lost their last five games, including a 76-71 setback on Friday night at No. 22 Florida State. Tyaunna Marshall led three Georgia Tech players in double digits with 26 points. Freshman Brittany Jackson tossed in 17 points on 7-of-16 shooting and Sydney Wallace added 13 points.
NC State stays on the road to play at Boston College on Thursday in Chestnut Hill, Mass., at 7 p.m.
