Players to Watch

NC State
Julius Hodge-- Hodge will likely draw the matchup on Terrence Woods, who led the nation in 3-pointers made last season. "Jules" will also be the catalyst for the NC State offense. Look for him to attack Florida A&M while also trying to stop the high-scoring Woods.

Florida A&M
Terrence Woods-- The 6-foot-3 guard is averaging 21 points in Florida A&M's two games this season and he will be the focal point of their offense. A pure-scorer at guard, Woods led the nation in 3-pointers made last season (5.0 per game) and is shooting 10 a game this year. If he gets hot, the Wolfpack could be in trouble, but look for NC State to make others beat them tonight.

Additional Notes

- Julius Hodge is averaging 19.5 PPG and 9.5 RPG, leading the Wolfpack in both categories.

- Senior SG Scooter Sherrill's off to a great start this year, averaging 15.5 PPG over the Wolfpack's first two games. Sherrill led the Wolfpack with 17 points against Howard, on 6-8 FG shooting.

- After going scoreless in his first game back from injury, NC State F Ilian Evtimov finished with 11 points and 7 rebounds against Howard.

- Florida A&M returns 4 starters from last season's squad.
