RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — With a new coach leading a veteran team, the North Carolina State women are off to their best start in more than a decade.

That includes the program's first national ranking since one of its final seasons under late Hall of Fame coach Kay Yow.

The No. 20 Wolfpack (14-1, 1-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) beat ranked LSU in nonconference play, then rallied from 10 down in the second half to beat then-No. 20 Syracuse last weekend in the league opener. Now first-year coach Wes Moore is pushing his team to maintain its surprising start heading into Thursday's game at No. 13 North Carolina.

A win would give N.C. State its first 2-0 start in ACC play since the 1999-2000 season, which was the last time the team started 14-1.
