GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) - North Carolina State's offense had run through Markeisha Gatling inside all season. It's no surprise then that the No. 14 Wolfpack would struggle without her.
The 6-foot-5 senior didn't play in Saturday's 83-48 loss to No. 2 Notre Dame in the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament semifinals due to a knee injury suffered in Friday's quarterfinal win against Syracuse. Without her, N.C. State lacked its most efficient offensive player who was a reliable scorer and rebounder in the post.
