#8 Wolfpack Knocks Off #1 South Carolina, 54-46

COLUMBIA, S.C. – The eighth-ranked NC State women’s basketball team (2-0) came out on top of what was one of the most highly-anticipated matchups of non-conference play as it took down top-ranked South Carolina, 54-46 Thursday evening inside Colonial Life Arena.

The victory marked the Wolfpack’s first over a top-ranked team since March 3, 2007 when it defeated No. 1 Duke in the ACC Tournament. It was also just the third win over a top-ranked team in a total of 20 tries in program history.

The Pack handled the South Carolina crowd with poise as it took home a road win in the series for the first time since the 2004-05 campaign. NC State handed the Gamecocks their first home loss since the end of the 2018-19 regular season and snapped what was previously a 29-game overall winning streak for South Carolina.
