WBB: State Women Try to Save the Weekend- Again

A little over a week ago the State men's basketball team laid a second half egg against Pitt leaving it up to the State women's team to save the weekend against Syracuse, and they did. Yesterday the men's team laid an egg in the first and second half again leaving it up to the women's team to save the weekend by beating Wake at Wake.

From Go Pack:

The No. 20 NC State women’s basketball team (14-2, 1-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) returns to action on Sunday afternoon, taking on Wake Forest for its second ACC road game of the season. Tip-off is scheduled for 2 p.m. from Lawrence Joel Coliseum in Winston-Salem.

-Wake Forest enters Sunday’s game the owner of a 9-6 record which includes an 0-2 mark in ACC play.
-The Demon Deacons ended nonconference play on a five-game winning streak, taking down Belmont, UNC Wilmington, South Alabama, Florida A&M, and FIU.
-Wake Forest has dropped league contests to Miami (84-53) and Maryland (76-49) in January.
-The Demon Deacons are led in scoring by the dangerous tan­dem of Dearica Hamby (20.9 ppg) and Chelsea Douglas (19.2 ppg). These two scorers rank 26th and 50th in the country, respectively. Hamby is also WFU’s leading rebounder at 10.9 boards per game.
-Wake Forest ranks 14th in the ACC in opponent field goal per­centage (40.6) and 15th in the league in opponent three-point field goal percentage (35.9).

While Wake is 9 and 6, this will be no easy game and will go along way in determining whether this State team is an NCAA team or not. While Douglas is five-five, Hamby is six-three. Wake has on its team five players at six-three and eight players six feet or more. Compare this to State's five players at 6 feet or more with Gatling being six-five, Daniels being six-four and Burke being six-two. Wake's game plan will most likely be surrounding Gatling in the post to keep her from shooting easy bank shots. Gatling struggled against this defense in the Syracuse game, but got better in the UNC game. Hope she continues to improve.

State needs to win!
