Women's Hoops Tabbed No. 20 In Preseason
Sept. 21, 2010
RALEIGH, N.C. - The NC State women's basketball team was tabbed No. 20 by Lindy's in its preseason basketball publication.
The Wolfpack returns three starters and nine letterwinners from head coach Kellie Harper's first club that made an appearance in the 2010 NCAA Tournament.
NC State is one of four teams appearing in the rankings from the Atlantic Coast Conference, including Duke, North Carolina and Florida State.
Connecticut, Baylor, Stanford, Tennessee and Xavier comprise the top five slots.
The five newcomers for the Pack are Kody Burke, Myisha Goodwin-Coleman, Devin Griffin, Nashika "Breezy" Williams, and red-shirt freshman Lakeesa Daniel. Goodwin-Coleman was ranked the 47th overall player in the country by ESPN HoopGurlz and the No. 12 guard nationally by the same publication.
Harper is coming off a 20-14 first season with NC State, and a third-career NCAA Tournament appearance. She spearheaded her club to the finals of the ACC Tournament by winning three games in three days, before bowing out to top-seed Duke in the title game.
Fans will be able to get a first glimpse of the squad on Friday, Oct 15 with the annual Red Rally at Reynolds Coliseum. The Pack will also host North Greenville in an exhibition on Sunday, Nov. 7 at 2 p.m.
