Four players scored in double-digits for second-ranked NC State as they took down sixth-ranked Indiana in the Big Ten/ACC Women’s Basketball Challenge.

Reserve Diamond Johnson led all scorers with 19 points off the bench, while also contributing six rebounds and three assists. Kayla Jones added 17 points and 11 rebounds to secure the double-double while Raina Perez and Elissa Cunane added 13 and 11 points respectively.

The Wolfpack bench contributed 21 points to the Hoosiers’ eight.

Mackenzie Holmes had a big night for the Hoosiers, putting up 24 points and four rebounds in the effort. Ali Patberg and Grace Berger were the only other players to score in double digits, putting up 10 points apiece.

It’s Indiana’s second loss on the season after they were downed by Stanford in another top 10 matchup. For the Wolfpack, it’s their second takedown of a top 10 team after beating No. 8 Maryland on Thanksgiving.

NC State will host Elon on Sunday while Indiana will see their first Big Ten game on Monday when they host Penn State.
