RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — A wet court caused by a leaky roof resulted in an interruption of No. 3 North Carolina State’s women's basketball game with Liberty on Sunday.

The game was stopped prior to the start of the fourth quarter with unbeaten N.C. State holding a 60-47 lead at Reynolds Coliseum, its on-campus venue.

Heavy rains fell prior to and during the game.

The wet floor was near midcourt in front of the scorer’s table. A large trash container was collecting some water, while towels were placed on the floor.

Both teams were allowed to warm-up at the respective baskets during the break.

The game resumed after about a 20-minute pause.

This is N.C. State’s final home game until Jan. 4 vs. Florida State.
