    Quote of the Day: Julius Hodge - "I can't believe the season ended up like that. I just can't believe how we lost this game. It was unbelievable."

    Quote of the Day Extra: Marcus Melvin - "It's great that Coach (Herb) Sendek gave this opportunity and the university gave me the opportunity to get an education and be able to do something I love, which is play basketball. It's not the way I wanted it to end, but now it's time to move on. I am excited about the next level. One thing, if I make it, is I want to take all the things I've learned here, like working hard and staying focused throughout the good and bad things that happen."


    Pack falls to Vanderbilt
    Chip Alexander * News & Observer
    For the Pack, it was another exit from the NCAA Tournament that won't soon be forgotten, losing in the worst imaginable fashion. Leading Vanderbilt by 11 points with 3:40 to play Sunday, State saw it all slip away -- the lead, the game, the season. The Commodores rallied for a 75-73 victory in the second round of the NCAA Tournament, getting the winning points on Corey Smith's three-point play with 21.1 seconds to play. Read More
