RALEIGH, N.C. – The 22nd-ranked Florida State women’s basketball team continues on the road this weekend, facing N.C. State on Sunday at 3 p.m. at Reynolds Coliseum.
The contest will be televised live as part of the ACC’s Regional Sports Network and appear on FS Carolinas, FS South, CSN-MA, NESN, FS Tennessee, FS Arizona+, FS San Diego, FS Prime Ticket, FS Detroit and Sun Sports. The game will also be streamed live on ESPN3.
The Seminoles are winners of two straight, routing then-No. 24 Miami, 86-65, in Tallahassee a week ago before edging past Boston College, 67-57, on Thursday night in Chestnut Hill, Mass.
Senior forward Chasity Clayton led the Garnet and Gold against the Eagles, tallying 14 points and nine boards off the bench.
Led by Rodriguez’s 15.9 scoring average, Florida State is the only team in the country with five players averaging 10 or more points per game.
FSU (14-3, 4-2 in the ACC) also ranks third in the nation in scoring and fifth in field goal percentage.
North Carolina State (8-10, 0-6) is winless in the ACC.
The Wolfpack and the Seminoles split last season, with Florida State taking a thrilling three-point victory in Raleigh and NC State winning by three at the ACC Tournament in Greensboro.
Rodriguez drilled a 25-foot three-point bomb with 1.1 seconds left to break a 64-64 tie and give Florida State a 67-64 victory at Reynolds Coliseum.
A month later, senior guard Alexa Deluzio scored 26 points on 10-of-15 shooting in the season-ending 74-71 loss to the Wolfpack at the Greensboro Coliseum.
Florida State is 12-25 all-time versus NC State, but the Seminoles have won three straight in Raleigh and five of the last six overall.
