NC State women dominate Towson, 100-52

Towson, more like Ow, Son!

NCAA Womens Basketball: Indiana at NC State Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

If you’ve put a game on ice after 10 minutes, you’ve had a pretty good night. NC State raced out to a 26-5 lead on Towson after the first quarter and extended the lead to 30 points by halftime. So Wes Moore had a lot of garbage time to work with, and got 11 players at least 10 minutes of playing time.

Towson 52 76 68.4 131.6

Diamond Johnson was excellent in the first half and finished with a team-high 16 points on 7-10 shooting. Her playmaking ability will be a big difference for this team.

Elissa Cunane scored 15 points in 14 minutes, Jakia Brown-Turner had 13, Camille Hobby had 12, and Raina Perez added 11. Madison Hayes didn’t make a shot from the field but grabbed 12 boards and dished out six assists, both team-highs. The Pack’s young players got plenty of time in the second half and had their moments—Aziaha James scored nine points on 4-7 shooting to lead the way.

NC State shot 58 percent inside the arc, 50 percent from three, and grabbed nearly half its missed shots. Towson, oh dear sweet poor Towson: the Tigers were 3-31 from beyond the arc, and that’s about all that needs saying about their performance. It’s no wonder they got buried in a hurry.
