N.C. State came into Thursday night’s women’s basketball game with Virginia Tech desperately in need of a win.
And sparked by a lightning-fast start, the Wolfpack got it.
Myisha Goodwin-Coleman had 12 points and Marissa Kastanek 10, leading State to a 58-39 romp over Virginia Tech at Reynolds Coliseum.
State (9-11, 1-7 ACC), which snapped a six-game losing streak, leads the series with the Hokies 13-0.
The Wolfpack scored the game’s first 16 points, forcing Tech coach Dennis Wolff into three timeouts over the first seven minutes. The margin was never closer than nine points thereafter.
Monet Tellier came off the bench for 13 points for the Hokies (7-11, 1-6), who have now lost six straight.
State shot 36.4 percent from the floor to the visitors’ 26.4, knocking down 7-for-12 from outside the 3-point arc. The Wolfpack outrebounded the Hokies 40-36.
The Wolfpack travels to Georgia Tech on Sunday.
