CORAL GABLES, Fla. – The University of Miami women’s basketball team is set to play its third top-25 road game of the season Thursday night at NC State.

No. 14/14 Miami (12-2, 1-1 ACC) and RV/No. 23 NC State will square off at 7 p.m., at Reynolds Coliseum in Raleigh, N.C.

Miami trails the all-time series against NC State, 10-9, but has won nine of the last 11 matchups, including eight of the past nine. Most recently, the Hurricanes earned a 73-44 home victory in their 2015-16 ACC opener on Dec. 30, 2015.

In the first game of 2017, the Hurricanes recorded an impressive 82-50 victory at Pittsburgh Monday night. Miami led by 20-plus points for the entire second half and shot a season-best 52.5 percent from the floor.

Sophomore guard Laura Cornelius paced the Hurricanes with a career-high 24 point, shooting 8-of-8 from the field and 6-of-6 from 3-point range. It was the second time she has hit six 3-pointers without a miss—something no other Hurricane has done even once—joining last year’s game against the Wolfpack.

NC State enters Thursday night’s game with a 12-3 (2-0 ACC) record and is the lone team in the ACC with multiple conference victories and zero losses. The Wolfpack has three different players averaging a team-best 10.5 points per game in junior forward Chelsea Nelson, senior guard Miah Spencer and redshirt senior guard Dominique Wilson.

After posting a 20-11 (10-6 ACC) mark in 2015-16, NC State was picked seventh in the ACC preseason poll. In its first two ACC games of the season, the Wolfpack has defeated then-second-ranked Notre Dame, 70-62, and then-No. 6/7 Florida State, 70-61, with the latter victory coming on the road.

The contest between Miami and NC State will be broadcast live on ACC Network Extra HERE, as well as carried live on WVUM 90.5 FM HERE. Live stats for the game can be found HERE.

After taking on the Wolfpack, Miami will return home to host No. 7/6 Notre Dame Sunday at 3 p.m., at the Watsco Center in a game that will be televised on ESPN2.
