Web Run: Shooting drives Pack's success

N.C. State coach Herb Sendek says it's a matter of the Pack's offense running more smoothly, creating better shots. Wolfpack senior Tony Bethel says it may go a little deeper than that, adding that it's also knowing the other guy's defensive tendencies and how to attack them.

Hewitt: Pressure's all in Jackets' heads
