Seminoles Asking Fans To Think Pink
When the Seminoles take the court on Thursday against the Wolfpack, fans can do their part to help
The Seminoles have a goal of raising $10,000 for the Kay Yow/WBCA Cancer Fund through three ways. One dollar from every ticket sold will be donated, a silent auction will be held during the first half and following the contest fans, coaches and players will take part in the Shots For A Cure.
Following an emotion-filled run to the NCAA Tournament Sweet 16 last year, NC State has had its struggles come conference play. The Wolfpack came into the ACC slate with a 12-3 record, but have gone 2-5 during conference play and have not won a league game on the road. NC State has just two upperclassmen and they are the Wolfpack’s leading scorers. Senior Khadijah Whittington is second in the ACC in scoring (17.5 ppg.) and leads the league in rebounding (11.6 rebounds per game). Junior Shayla Fields is putting up 11.9 ppg. and dishing out 3.68 assists per game. The duo rates first (Field) and third (Whittington) in minutes played with FSU’ Mara Freshour sandwiched in the middle at No. 2.
Seminoles Try To Snap Three-Game Slide With Wolfpack
The last four seasons, NC State has been a big hurdle for the Seminoles, particularly in the postseason. The Wolfpack have sent Florida State home from each of the last two ACC Tournaments – including a 76-49 thumping last year – and have won the last three games. Since the second meeting of the 2002-03 campaign, NC State has won seven of the last eight by an average margin of 11.1 ppg. FSU’s lone win during that stretch was a 75-61 triumph in 2005-06.
