ST. BONAVENTURE, N.Y. - The NC State women's basketball team returns to action this Sunday by visiting St. Bonaventure for a 1 p.m., tip off at Reilly Center.
The Wolfpack struggled last time out in its ACC opener, falling 79-53 at Miami on Dec. 20. Kody Burke led the team with 13 points and eight rebounds, and Breezy Williams tossed in 10 points off the bench as the reserves scored 34 of the clubs 53 points. NC State shot a season-low 27.4 percent in the loss.
