    RALEIGH, N.C. -- Markeisha Gatling and Kody Burke each scored 25 points to lead North Carolina State to an 89-79 win over No. 12 LSU on Friday night.

    Gatling shot 11 of 13 from the field and grabbed eight rebounds, six off the offensive glass, to lead the Wolfpack (11-1) to their first win against a ranked opponent since a 76-69 win over No.19 Florida State on Valentine's Day.

    Burke drilled three straight jumpers to help NC State to a 12-6 lead to start the game, but the Lady Tigers clawed their way back into the game, taking a lead on a Theresa Plaisance 3-pointer with 9:44 left in the game.

    Gatling's layup with 8:01 left sparked an 11-1 run that put the Wolfpack back in the lead for good.

    Plaisance finished with 18 points off the bench to lead LSU (9-2). Jeanne Kenney added another 17 points.
