    N.C. State sees more of itself in Vanderbilt

    The scouting report sounded eerily familiar when N.C. State forward Julius Hodge first heard it Friday evening. <p><small><b>Other featured stories for 3/21:</b></small><li><a href="http://newsobserver.com/sports/story/3438331p-3056087c.html" target=blank><b>Hodge gets shot on national stage</b></a> <li><a href="http://www.news-record.com/sports/acc/ncaatourneyextra_032104.htm" target=blank><b>Sherrill to sit against Vanderbilt </b></a>

    Quote of the Day: Vanderbilt Head Basketball Coach Kevin Stallings - "North Carolina State is an awfully good basketball team. They are really good on the perimeter. They are really good inside. They are very well coached. There is not much there where you can find weakness. They play very well together and shoot the ball very well. They are a good free throw shooting team. There are a lot of problem areas in this game for us. I can only hope that as they look at film they feel as there are problem areas for them also."

    Scott Hundley - "They (NC State) know what we're doing, and we know what they're doing. It's going to be a battle of wills."

"It sounded like they were talking about us,'' Hodge said Saturday as third-seeded N.C. State (21-9) prepared for today's 2:40 tipoff against No. 6 Vanderbilt (22-9) at the TD Waterhouse Centre.
