TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - Pink is a good color for Florida State.

The No. 4 Seminoles (17-0, 6-0) swept NC State 3-0 (25-21, 25-16, 25-23), Sunday afternoon during FSU's annual Paint it Pink match inside Tully Gym.

Kiara Wright led Florida State on the attack, posting a career-high 14 kills, hitting .524 percent from the floor.

"Kiara is getting better every week," FSU head volleyball coach Chris Poole said. "We love her energy on the court. She's very fast and athletic and as she gets better it just gives us another weapon to use."

"Things were going well between the setter and me," Wright said. "We trust in each other and we've worked to get to that point and things were clicking between us today."

The Noles' current 17-match win streak is the third-best in program history. They also extended their ACC home win streak to 31 matches.

FSU will next host cross-town rivals Florida A&M on Friday, October 17, at 7:00 p.m.
