RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Jada Boyd had a double-double in her first collegiate game, classmate Jakia Brown-Turner scored 14 points and No. 14 North Carolina State rolled to an 80-44 win over North Carolina A&T in the season opener for both teams Wednesday night.
Boyd scored 18 points on 5-of-7 shooting, plus 8-of-9 shooting from the foul line, and grabbed 11 rebounds. Kayla Jones also had 14 points on 5-of-7 shooting and all 11 Wolfpack players scored.
With their 17th straight season-opening win and 30th straight non-conference home win, the Wolfpack gave coach Wes Moore his 699th career victory, 141 at N.C. State.
Brown-Turner scored the first five points of the season and after an Aggies basket, Jones sandwiched a pair of 3-pointers around a Brown-Turner trey then made a layup for a 15-2 lead without missing a shot.
N.C. State led 30-14 at the half as N.C. A&T shot 19 percent, then Boyd scored all of her points in the second half.
