Web Run: History will not wait on Wolfpack

Though the team has finally figured out a way to get over the UNC-Duke hump, having beaten both within the span of three glorious Saturdays, the shine from those emotional victories has been dulled by inexplicable midweek hiccups at Maryland, Wake Forest and Virginia.

Though the team has finally figured out a way to get over the UNC-Duke hump, having beaten both within the span of three glorious Saturdays, the shine from those emotional victories has been dulled by inexplicable midweek hiccups at Maryland, Wake Forest and Virginia.

Instead of riding high atop the ACC standings as predicted, the Wolfpack faces surprise league leader Miami at PNC Arena on Saturday afternoon with the potential of falling four games out of first place.

"When you go toe-to-toe with John Calipari in recruiting and come out with an advantage, you've done something right. NC State's visit reduced Randle's Kentucky visit to "yeah they had Drake and everything." It definitely helped that there was a real game to attend and a rivalry one at that, but that's still impressive."

- Rush The Court's "mpatton" on the Julius Randle Blog.
