NC State's powerful inside game and the one-two punch of Markeisha Gatling and Kody Burke was too much for a hot shooting Boston College club to overcome, as the Wolfpack Women defended their home court 85-76. It was for the most part a very well played basketball game - 79% of baskets made were assisted, only 12 turnovers per team, and the foul totals were only inflated by BC's endgame. State led wire to wire, jumping ahead to a quick 9-0 lead that ironically proved to also be the final margin. That margin blossomed to 15-2, but the Eagles managed to chip into that lead once Myisha Goodwin-Coleman went to the bench with two fouls. It was 33-22 State when BC made threes on four of five possessions, and but for a charge by Emilee Daley after she dished to an open shooter, it could have been five straight. Len'Nique Brown joined MGC on the bench with her second with 2:14 left, forcing State to work harder inside. Gatling scored a traditional three point play on Kristen Doherty's second foul with 39 seconds left in the frame, but Kelly Hughes' third three of the half cut the Eagles deficit to 41-39 at the break. State's advantage in the paint was 16-4 while six different BC players had hit from long distance. The most galling for Wes Moore was Katie Zenevitch's perfect half from the floor, hitting two threes as State's bigs didn't keep up with her on the perimeter. Meanwhile State's bench took few shots and hit none, as 30 of the 41 Wolfpack points came from Burke (16) and Gatling (14).

BC cut it to one point with a Kelly Hughes three with 18:04 left in the game, but that was as close as it would get as BC's fouls mounted. The next possession was disaster for the visitors as State not only got a three, but also Doherty's third foul. The Pack pounded the ball into Gatling to draw Kelly Hughes' second, then Zenevitch charged into her third on the next possession. Karima Gabriel was an ineffective sub for Zenevitch, and back to back scores by MGC and a Gatling stickback stretched it to eight, time out BC. From then on sporadic Eagle threes weren't enough to dent that working margin, and the overmatched BC posts prompted a Pack parade to the line. And that parade was indeed effective, with NCSU at 22-26 from the stripe any comeback hopes were more smoke than fire.

Top Performers:

  1. Markeisha Gatling, NC State. 27 points, 9-13 FG, 9-10 FT, 7 rebounds, 4 assists. We are finally seeing the Gatling that the Pack faithful hoped for when she came to Raleigh last year. She's using her body effectively and finding the balance between aggressiveness and crossing the line into fouls. Her performance at the free throw line was a huge bonus, invalidating any potential "Hack-a-Gat" strategy.

  2. Kody Burke, NC State. 24 points, 10-16 FG, 2-4 3FG, 11 rebounds. Burke was inside, outside, and everywhere, and while BC might have been able to address one big on her game, a second was backbreaking.

  3. Kelly Hughes, Boston College. 23 points, 6-10 3FG, 3 assists. Coach Moore noted that this was another game where State's defense couldn't find the hot shooter, while BC's patient offense worked extremely hard to move that defense to find her wide open looks. Hughes is only a freshman, and with so many other BC bombers in play, she'll continue to give the rest of the ACC coaches fits.

  4. Katie Zenevitch, Boston College. 19 points, 7-8 FG, 3-3 3FG, 3 assists. BC needs Zenevitch and Doherty healthy and on the floor at all times to remain competitive against the top 3/4 of the ACC. Her numbers were truly remarkable against State's posts and reflect desire and senior leadership as much as ability.

  5. Honorable Mention: 8 assists from Krystal Barrett, Len'Nique Brown 9-10 FT in the second half.

Game Analysis

Why NC State Won: The combination of Gatling and Burke with both "on their game" was far too much for BC to handle, especially with each avoiding foul trouble. Even when one was were out of the game, Lakeesa Daniel was an effective and active substitute.

Why BC Lost: Looking past their 46% three point shooting mark (13-28), the Eagles shot only 10-32 from two point range. While Johnson's passed the ball very crisply and moved it as well as any team I've seen in person save UConn, several key second half turnovers and unnecessary poorly timed fouls doomed their comeback efforts.

The Game Turned When...: Zenevitch drew her third foul on a charge with 16:01 left, and State surged ahead while she sat.

Key Stat: NC State scored 36 of their 44 second half points in the paint or from the free throw line, exceeding BC's total for the entire game.

X-Factor: Boston College playing hurt. Kristen Doherty is tough as nails, but even with ribs tightly wrapped after clashes with ND, Duke, and UNC, she noticeably winced while shooting and taking free throws. Kat Cooper wasn't available due to an arm injury suffered in an entanglement with a UNC player, and her presence would have given BC one more player in the mix.

Areas for Improvement: Both teams lost possessions on offensive fouls. Better body awareness and becoming in tune with what the officiating crew has in mind on any given evening would make these two efficient offenses even more so. BC needs to get well. NC State needs to maintain the composure they lacked at Miami but found against BC on future road trips.

Ramifications: The Pack took care of business at home, absolutely necessary with Georgia Tech and Maryland up next. Coach Moore is looking to start a winning streak (audio), and doing so before their subsequent three against the bottom (Wake, @VT, @Clemson) would have huge post-season implications. While Boston College stands at 2-4, the majority of those losses came to top ten teams ND, Duke, and UNC - listen to coach Johnson's response to my question on that. They'll need to avoid any miscues against next three foes Wake, Pitt, and Virginia Tech to maintain their postseason hopes.
