Redshirt junior guard Amber White made a 11-foot fade-away jumper along the baseline as time expired to lift the Wolfpack women’s basketball team to a 51-49 win over Wake Forest Friday night in Reynolds Coliseum to snap a two-game losing streak. With the win, the Wolfpack improve to 12-8 overall and 2-2 in the ACC as they head into their Monday night matchup against rival UNC, ranked No. 14 in the nation, at 7 p.m. in Reynolds. Fast-forward to the 57-second mark of the video above to see the game-winning shot. And check out the photos in the gallery below that Tim O’Brien of NC State Student Media took at the game, including this shot of the moment after White’s winning basket:

Go to GoPack.com for a game recap and box score. Coach Kellie Harper’s post-game comments are after the jump.

After each game, Coach Harper grabs a microphone, steps on to center court and addresses the crowd after the playing of the alma mater. Here is what she told the crowd after the win over Wake Forest:

“Hey! Great crowd! Great crowd tonight! Thank you so much! We weren’t out a half-time for the military appreciation. So thank you guys and gals. Monday night. I don’t have to tell you that we need you here! we need you all here!”

Don’t forget Monday night the Wolfpack faces UNC at 7 p.m. in Reynolds. If you can’t make it to Raleigh for the game, watch it on the RSN Network (Fox Sports Carolina) or listen to it on WKNC 88.1.
