N.C. State led all the way and then held on in the final minute, getting new coach Kellie Harper another big road victory with a 59-53 women's basketball decision at Southern California.

Amber White (pictured) led the Wolfpack (9-5) with 17 points while Bonae Holston added 16 in the first meeting between the two teams.

Briana Gilbreath led USC (6-5) with 16 points, while Daniela Roark chipped in 10 off the bench.

Marissa Kastanek added 12 points for the Wolfpack, which saw a 16-point second-half lead cut to a point before the Trojans couldn't score over the final 3:21.

Nikitta Gartrell's three-point play and a pair of White free throws locked up the result for the Wolfpack.

State's final game before the start of ACC play is at home on Monday night against Columbia.
