Konig, a senior, broke her previous best of six 3-pointers with another smooth shot with 8:17 to go that gave North Carolina State a 66-47 lead.
The Wolfpack finished with a season-high 14 threes.
Kayla Jones had 15 points and Jakia Brown-Turner 12 for the Wolfpack.
The outside touch proved essential on a night when leading scorer Elissa Cunane was not as sharp as usual. The 6-foot-5 sophomore, who entered as the ACC’s fifth-leading scorer at 17 points a game, was just 2-of-7 shooting and finished with eight points.
Still, Cunane helped the Wolfpack move in front during the second quarter. She had six points in a 12-4 run after Clemson had tied the game at 22-all and tightened up its perimeter defense.
That opened things for Cunane. She made a pair of inside shots and two free throws in the Wolfpack’s 12-4 run that up them ahead 34-24 about 90 seconds before half time.
North Carolina State: The Wolfpack have just two more games until their showdown for ACC with No. 5 Louisville on Feb. 13 that should go a long way to determining the regular-season champion. North Carolina State must play at Duke on Sunday and Virginia Tech next Thursday before concentrating on the Cardinals.
Clemson: The Tigers were the surprise of the ACC a year ago in coach Amanda Butler’s first season as they won 20 games and reached the NCAA Tournament for the first time in 17 years. But this year’s group has six underclassmen who are still learning how to play against the ACC’s best teams.
North Carolina State continues its road swing at Duke on Sunday.
