Wolfpack holds on, wins at Southern Cal



N.C. State led all the way and then held on in the final minute, getting new coach Kellie Harper another big road victory with a 59-53 women's basketball decision at Southern California.

Amber White (pictured) led the Wolfpack (9-5) with 17 points while Bonae Holston added 16 in the first meeting between the two teams.

Briana Gilbreath led USC (6-5) with 16 points, while Daniela Roark chipped in 10 off the bench.

Marissa Kastanek added 12 points for the Wolfpack, which saw a 16-point second-half lead cut to a point before the Trojans couldn't score over the final 3:21.

Nikitta Gartrell's three-point play and a pair of White free throws locked up the result for the Wolfpack.

State's final game before the start of ACC play is at home on Monday night against Columbia.
