For the NC State women ' s basketball team, the final two games of the regular season had no affect on the ACC regular season race or the conference's postseason tournament seedings. But wins against Syracuse on Senior Night and at Virginia last Sunday were hugely important repairing the Wolfpack's waning confidence as it prepares to enter the month that will ultimately More importantly, their senior leadership and the urgency that usually comes with it this time of year, appears to have rubbed off on younger teammates such as ACC All-Freshman team members Jakia Brown-Turner and Jada Boyd .

Elissa Cunane’s big game helps NC State Wolfpack women ’ s basketball win its ACC tournament opener over the Virginia Tech Hokies in the quarterfinal round. Cunane got plenty of help from Jada Boyd , who came off the bench to finish with 13 points and 10 rebounds. But Cunane did most of the heavy lifting. She scored 16 points in the second half, eight in the fourth quarter, holding off the Hokies, who cut it to within six. Cunane scored on a spinning layup to start the final quarter.

Wes Moore said Wednesday that his team will begin the 2021-22 season shorthanded because forward Jada Boyd has a hand injury that will require her to miss “a couple of months, probably.” Boyd tore a tendon in her shooting hand.

This is an unhelpful development, because Kayla Jones isn’t fully recovered from the injury she sustained during the NCAA tournament last season, and Boyd would have been the one primarily filling that gap until Jones was good to go.

So Moore is going to have to be a little more creative with his lineups than he’d like to be between now and Januaryish, but the good news is that NC State has the talent to excel despite the setback to Boyd. That may mean a more guard-oriented look, which should still suit the team fine, and there will probably be an increased reliance on Camille Hobby in the frontcourt. She showed last year she can handle it.

Boyd’s setback is disappointing because the Wolfpack has a lot of big non-conference games in the first half of the season, but obviously the most important thing for a team with big long-term goals is that Boyd (and Jones) are healthy and back comfortably in the rotation toward the latter end of the regular season. None of the games State plays before the calendar turns will alter the outcome of its season.
