Update (5:15 p.m.)-

Pitt women’s basketball struggled through their contest against No. 3 NC State Sunday afternoon at the Petersen Events Center, falling 83-47.

The loss for the Panthers (7-18 overall, 1-11 ACC) is the fifth straight and the ninth straight at home in ACC games, dating back to last season. The loss to the Wolfpack (21-3 overall, 9-3 ACC) is the ninth straight since 2016 and drops them to 2-11 against them all-time.

This is also the 57th consecutive loss to a ranked opponent since 2015 and the sixth this season for the Panthers.

Pitt stayed in the game initially, down just 18-14 with 1:23 left in the first quarter. NC State would eventually get things going and closed out the half on a 35-6 run to lead 53-20.

The 30 points the Wolfpack scored in the second quarter rank tied No. 9 all-time for most points the Panthers have allowed in a quarter. They shot 13-for-16 from the field, 81.3%, and made two 3-pointers during the second quarter, while the Panthers shot 3-for-15 from the field and 0-for-3 from 3-point range.

Pitt outscored NC State 13-10 in third quarter and outshot them 30% to 26.3% in the second half, but couldn’t find a way to make a real dent in the lead, as NC State would outscore them 30-27 in the second half.

Senior guard Madison Hayes led the Wolfpack with 16 points, while graduate student center River Baldwin scored 15 points on 6-for-8 shooting. 

Graduate student forward Mimi Collins scored 13 points on 6-for-6 shooting for NC State, but suffered an injury early in the second half and didn’t return.

NC State had 23 assists compared to Pitt’s five assists, their lowest amount in a game this season.

First-year guard Aaryn Battle led Pitt with 11 points, while both sophomore guard Marley Washentiz and graduate student forward Jala Jordan finished with 10 points each. Senior forward Liatu King led all players with 12 rebounds.

Pitt will go on the road to face North Carolina on Thursday for their next game.
