NC State Concludes Season In WNIT Second Round

HARRISONBURG, Va. - The NC State women's basketball team had its season come to a close with a 72-66 setback at James Madison in the second round of the Postseason Women's NIT Sunday.

Len'Nique Brown led NC State (17-17) with 13 points, while Markeisha Gatling and Myisha Goodwin-Coleman added 12 points apiece.

Marissa Kastanek scored nine points in her final game with the Wolfpack, and finishes with 1,655 career points, and 240 three-pointers. Those figures rank eighth and second, respectively in school history.

Brown gave NC State a 43-42 lead midway through the second half, but James Madison exploded with an 18-4 run over a six-minute stretch to put the game out of reach.

Goodwin-Coleman got State to within four at 70-66 with a shot from downtown, but with only 20 seconds left the Pack ran out of time.

NC State shot 45.1 percent for the game, and nearly 58 percent in the second half. The visitors led by four points on three occasions in the second half, the final time after a Kastanek bucket with just under 12 minutes to play and leading 42-38.
