The Wolfpack tried to tie the game after Bravard’s basket, but Amber White was called for an offensive foul on her drive to the hoop with six seconds remaining. Bravard’s go-ahead layup gave Florida State its first lead since midway through the first half.

Feshman Marissa Kastanek scored 18 points for N.C. State.
