All throughout North Carolina State's Atlantic Coast Conference opener against Boston College on Saturday, Wolfpack guard Lorenzo Brown and referee Les Jones kept up a relatively friendly conversation.

There were so many whistles the officials felt like drum majors.

Brown, for the most part, chatted up Jones for clarification.

But with 27 seconds left in a tight game, when BC forward Ryan Anderson won a shoving match with Wolfpack forward Richard Howell for a rebound under the Eagles' basket, flushed a two-handed dunk, and got the foul call for a 3-point play that cut N.C. State's lead to 72-71, Brown grinned in disbelief, then walked toward Jones.

Wolfpack football coach to fight for N.C. recruits
Joe Giglio * News & Observer
The comparison caught the attention of the players in the room when N.C. State athletic director Debbie Yow explained why she fired football coach Tom O'Brien after a 7-5 season.

Yow spoke at length to the current players about recruiting, which was the main disconnect between Yow and O'Brien and ultimately led to his ouster on Nov. 25 after a 40-35 record in six seasons. Yow told the players N.C. State's next coach would have a common trait with Alabama, which will play for its third national title in four years under coach Nick Saban on Monday.

Jim Valvano: Cutting Down the Nets Speech 1987



"Our defense at times was really good. What we have to learn to do is sustain it. That has been the issue for us too many times this year. We start the game, for the first 10 minutes, running with cement boots on. Then, it becomes time to guard someone and we jump out there and really play."
