NC Central kindly filled the void left when Radford couldn’t make its scheduled trip to Raleigh, and for that favor the Eagles were greeted by an NC State team playing to the peak of its ability at the offensive end. The Wolfpack posted the second-best shooting percentage in school history (.683) on the way to a 108-70 victory.

The Wolfpack absolutely dominated the paint, shooting over 78% on twos, led by Elissa Cunane’s 6-6 shooting performance. Cunane scored 17 points to lead the team despite playing only 20 minutes. The game was over after the first quarter with the Pack holding a 32-11 lead, and Wes Moore was able to spread the minutes across the roster. Nobody played more than 25 minutes.

Six State players scored in double figures: all five starters, plus Raina Perez, who scored 15 on 6-7 shooting off the bench. The graduate transfer point guard was outstanding and the offense came easy, as it did for just about everybody in a State uniform.

Next up for the Wolfpack is a road trip to No. 1 South Carolina on Thursday—that’ll be a heck of an early litmus test.
