- 25-1 run propels NC State past SU in women?s ACC Tournament
Greensboro, NC - Behind a 25-1 second-half run that erased a 9-point Orange lead, North Carolina State defeated the Syracuse University women's basketball team 79-63 in the ACC Tournament quarterfinals on Friday at the Greensboro Coliseum.
The No. 5 seed Orange (22-9) now await the NCAA Division I Women's Basketball Selection Show on Monday, March 17 at 7 p.m. on ESPN.
Brittney Sykes led Syracuse with 14 points to go with 8 rebounds and 2 blocks. Brianna Butler, Rachel Coffey and La'Shay Taft each added 9 points for the Orange, which shot 34.3 percent, including 9-of-32 from 3-point range.
Markeisha Gatling led the Wolfpack with 28 points and Kody Burke had 21 points and 16 rebounds in addition to 5 assists.
NC State shot 44.4 percent overall and 6-of-16 from behind the arc.
After a Butler 3-pointer gave the Orange a 9-point lead with 15:35 remaining, NC State went on a 25-1 run with all but the final 3 points coming from Burke and Gatling to take control, 64-49, with 8:08 to go.
The Orange missed 16-straight field goal attempts before a Briana Day put-back with 7:44 left ended the almost eight-minute drought.
Within the run, there were three extended stoppages due to power issues at the Greensboro Coliseum related to an ice storm.
Sykes converted a 3-point play with 1:24 on the clock to make it a 9-point game again, 72-63, but NC State went 7-of-8 from the free throw line over the duration to ice the victory.
Sykes' 14 points gives her a season total of 519, the fifth-most in program history.
- No shining armor, but Silver Knights ride into War Memorial to help young girl
Syracuse (WSYR-TV) - The Syracuse Silver Knights will compete in their first-ever playoff game Friday night at the War Memorial, but the team will be playing for more than a shot at the championship.
The Silver Knights hope to change the life of 3-year-old Arianna Failla, who suffers from Tuberous Sclerosis, which are benign tumors that cause severe epilepsy.
“She's had four brain surgeries since February, and we're working on another one right now,” said Arianna’s mother Jennifer Failla.
Arianna’s mother says she suffers nearly 10 seizures a day.
“I just can’t do it by myself. I constantly have to be right there with her,” she said.
Soon Arianna will have a new teammate, a seizure dog who can smell the chemical changes before a seizure episode begins.
“It’s going to be so comforting for her to have that there, to be able to pet it and hug it and kiss it, basically it will be her best friend,” Jennifer said.
In order to pay the thousands of dollars for a service dog, Arianna’s parents have enlisted the help of some knights in shining armor.
“She'll be kicking off the game and she'll run out there with the team if she can,” said Syracuse Silver Knights Head Coach Tommy Tanner.
$2 of each ticket for Friday night’s game will be donated help make the purchase for Arianna.
The game will kick off at 7:30 p.m. at the War Memorial and tickets can be purchased at the door.
