"It's different because they shoot. They can shoot better than people from the states. Most European players, they work on their perimeter game first more than people from the states like to dribble and go to the hole. All European players, they can shoot jumpers; that's kind of the difference." - Virginia Tech junior guard Jamon Gordon

"Well J.J. (Redick)'s American. He'll shoot it from half-court. I don't think it's what nationality you are, if you're European or American. That's funny; that has nothing to do with it. We're all players; we all play the game. I don't think that has anything to do with it." - Cam Bennerman correcting Tech's Jamon Gordon

After watching nearly every NC State baseball game from the bench last season, Matt Mangini has learned to cherish every pitch, every at-bat, every inning and every game. "You can't take anything for granted," said Mangini. "Just because you have a spot in the lineup, doesn't mean you will keep it. I just want to keep playing hard and let my abilities take over." Right now, the 6-2, 209-pound sophomore from Holly Springs, NC, is getting a hit just about every time he steps up to the plate. In six games, he has 20 hits in 25 at-bats for an .800 batting average, two doubles, three triples, 13 runs scored and 14 RBIs, numbers that would be hard to match in slow-pitch softball or T-ball.

He slowly starts his delivery, reaches his balance point and strides powerfully toward the plate as he releases the ball from his steadfast grip. The sound of the ball hitting the mitt is amplified tenfold by the silence that had previously owned the ballpark: "POW." Read More
