"I'm a work in progress, man." - Cedric Simmons



Simmons beefs up his role for Pack
Lorenzo Perez * News & Observer
Spotty work habits led to lapses in playing time last season for N.C. State center Cedric Simmons. But after a sweaty summer spent bulking up and refining his moves around the basket, the 6-foot-9 sophomore has teammates looking to feed him regularly in the post. In the Wolfpack's Nov. 30 loss at Iowa, he scored 13 points, grabbed 13 rebounds, blocked eight shots and passed out five assists. And on a team of largely interchangeable parts, Simmons has emerged as the No. 21 Wolfpack's indispensable man in the middle. Simmons leads State in scoring (12.6 points per game) and rebounding (6.9), and his team-high 2.57 blocked shots a game place him second in the ACC. Read More

N.C. State fans are more than halfway to meeting the challenge Meineke Car Care Bowl executive director Will Webb made when he invited the Wolfpack to play South Florida on Dec. 31 in Charlotte. Late Tuesday, N.C. State had sold 16,000 tickets. North Carolina sold 30,400 last year for its meeting in Charlotte with Boston College in what was then the Continental Tire Bowl. Webb has urged N.C. State fans to meet North Carolina's number. Read More
