"The loss at Tech wasn't all that surprising, neither was how State handled another blown last-second shot situation. Other than the somewhat free-spirited Cameron Bennerman, nobody else is creative enough and relies too heavily on the system late in games, and that's a problem. Gavin Grant's decision isn't why State lost, but it poorly reflected so many other last-second situations in recent years, when the ball never reaches the rim. Grade: D." - Star-News' Andrew Jones on this week's NC State grade in the ACC

If that T-shirt, foam finger and bumper sticker don't broadcast your loyalties loudly enough, how about showing up at the game in a team-themed truck? More precisely, an F-150 pickup painted Wolfpack red or with a Carolina blue console. The trucks, produced by American Specialty Trucks of Danielsville, Ga., are starting to roll into dealerships in Eastern North Carolina. They have embroidered mascots on the seats and features such as wolf or ram hood ornaments. href="http://www.newsobserver.com/752/story/400022.html" target=blank> Read More
