#9 Wolfpack Cruises Past Virginia to Continue Unbeaten Start to Season
Cunane posts second-straight 20+ point performance, Konig surpasses 1,000 career points
RALEIGH – The ninth-ranked NC State women’s basketball team (14-0, 3-0 ACC) continued to build on its perfect start to the 2019-20 season with an 80-60 victory over Virginia Sunday afternoon on Kay Yow Court inside Valvano Arena at Reynolds Coliseum.
With the victory, the Wolfpack remained the only unbeaten team in the Atlantic Coast Conference.
NC State never trailed in the game and owned a lead from two minutes into the first quarter until the final buzzer. The Pack nailed 11 three-pointers in the game and shot just over 49 percent (28-of-57) from the field.
The Wolfpack also did a tremendous job of sharing the ball and set a new season high in assists. NC State assisted on 24 of its 28 made field goals, and five different players dished out three or more on the day.
Elissa Cunane posted her eighth double-double of the season with a game-leading 26 points and 10 rebounds. She shot 8-of-11 from the field and was a perfect 10-of-10 from the free throw line in the victory. The sophomore center has tallied 54 points in her last two outings alone, as she matched her career high of 28 points in the Pack’s Thursday night win against Virginia Tech.
Jakia Brown-Turner entered double digits in scoring for the second time in conference play with 13 points, including a 3-of-6 clip from long range. Grace Hunter added 10 points, with seven of those coming down the stretch in the fourth quarter.
Senior guard Aislinn Konig reached the 1,000-point milestone as she hit a three in the Wolfpack’s final possession of the first quarter. The achievement made her the 14th active ACC player to surpass 1,000 points in her career.
