Caldwell is believed to have visited the U.Va. campus Monday.
"When coach Nikki came here, she came with a drive and intensity that we weren't going to take anything less," senior guard Doreena Campbell said. "She came in and instilled discipline into us and hard work and the belief that we can to anything, as long as we put the effort in.
"We're climbing the ladder, but we still haven’t peaked yet. We still haven't hit that point where we can completely put it out for that whole entire time."
That day is coming.
[Nikitta Gartrell] made the free throw for a 19-10 lead with 7 1/2 minutes left in the first half. North Carolina State led by nine points a little later, too, right after Caldwell called out a missed three-pointer by Tukiainen by yelling, "Hey, what are we doing? Get the ball inside!"
The Bruins got the message, increasing their aggression and attacking the Wolfpack inside where they were more vulnerable.
