For about 34 minutes on Sunday afternoon, it had been a forgettable performance for NC State, which hadn’t shot the ball well and found itself down 16 to Boston College. From there, the Pack decided that it was not gonna let this game be defined by the first three quarters.
A Jakia Brown-Turner three-point play cut the lead to 13, then Elissa Cunane cut the margin further with five straight, and then Kayla Jones got to work. Jones scored nine straight points to turn a 67-57 game into a 67-66 game with 2:32 left, capping off her personal run with State’s lone three of the second half.
State took the lead for good with 1:25 remaining—it had taken less than five minutes of game time for the Wolfpack to make that 16-point deficit dissappear. Boston College scored just four points over the last six minutes. The Eagles shot just 2-16 from the field in the fourth quarter.
