NC STATE - MORGAN STATE SERIES HISTORY
Monday’s game will serve as the first-ever meeting between NC State and Morgan State.
ON FIRE FROM DISTANCE
NC State was unstoppable from three-point range during the win over Presbyterian. The Wolfpack connected on 14 of 30 three-pointers (46.7 percent) to achieve the second highest single-game mark in program history. Freshman Ashley Williams had the best day of all, going a near-perfect 4-5 from beyond the arc.
THERE’S NO PLACE LIKE REYNOLDS
Since the program’s first season in 1974-75, Reynolds Coliseum has served as a fortress for NC State. The Wolfpack has posted a home record of 406-121 (.770) in 39+ seasons in the historic facility.
ALWAYS IN FRONT
Through 120 minutes of basketball in the 2013-14 season, NC State has never once trailed. The Wolfpack has outscored its opponents 224-138 and has never played from behind.
Through the first three games of the 2013-14 season, NC State has eight student-athletes who are averaging at least 5.0 points per game. Four of them (Myisha Goodwin-Coleman, Len’Nique Brown, Ashley Williams, and Markeisha Gatling) are averaging 8.0 points or more each outing.
State ended its win over Presbyterian by sinking six of its final nine three-pointers. The Wolfpack ended the contest on a 20-9 run.
JUDICIOUS IN POSSESSION
Junior point guard Len’Nique Brown has been very judicious in possession this season. Through the first three games of the year, she has dished out a team high 12 assists while committing just three turnovers.
NC State’s bench outscored its Towson counterpart by a 22-2 margin on Nov. 11. Factoring in the Nov. 8 St. Bonaventure game and the Nov. 16 Presbyterian contest, the Wolfpack bench has outscored the opposing reserves by a 99-37 margin to begin the 2013-14 season.
