WBB State preview statistics

The Wolfpack has had a resurgence this season in the first year of Wes Moore's tenure as their head coach, and is definitely a candidate to be the ACC's Coach of the Year.

Six seniors, including Myisha Goodwin-Coleman, Markeisha Gatling, and Kody Burke will be recognized before the game. NC State hasn't been in the big dance since 2010, so this is also a special treat for this senior class in particular, and hopefully the Wolfpack will be back as conference contenders for years to come..

For the Fighting Irish, they will go for an undefeated regular season since they are already the #1 seed in the ACC Tournament this week regardless of what happens. However, they could have the number one overall seed in the NCAA Tournament should they win this game and the ACC Tournament, even though Connecticut is number one in the polls. After all, Notre Dame has the #1 rank in the RPI rankings, and plays in what is arguably the best conference in women's college basketball.
