RALEIGH, N.C. Markeisha Gatling’s career-high 26 points led the NC State Wolfpack women’s basketball team to a dominating 91-51 win over the Elon Phoenix at Reynolds Coliseum on Sunday.

NC State (10-1) improved its home record to a clean 7-0 as Gatling’s 26 points came on a career-high 13-of-14 performance from the field, ranking it as one of the greatest single-game shooting performances in program history.

Myisha Goodwin-Coleman (14 points, 3 rebounds), Lakeesa Daniel (10 points, 9 rebounds), Miah Spencer (9 points, 5 rebounds), and Krystal Barrett (9 points, 4 rebounds) all contributed to a 51-percent shooting performance from the field.

The Wolfpack outrebounded the Phoenix 46-27, distributed the ball plentifully in finishing with 27 total assists, and dropped 42 percent (10-24) of their shots from beyond the arc.

NC State now prepares for its next game on Dec. 20 when it faces its first top-25 opponent in the 13th-ranked LSU Tigers at home in Reynolds.
