Web Run: Miami handles State

Often, the Hurricanes play games and hardly anyone shows up, especially with weather so balmy. Take Saturday's game, for example. Miami whipped N.C. State 80-65 before an announced crowd of 3,099 at the BankUnited Center. The Canes had that many fans turn out for their baseball game Saturday night.

"It didn't surprise us, because they are one of the best rebounding teams in the conference and we talked about that. It's something we've been stressing for the last couple of days -- they go to the boards. We singled out Copeland and what he does and how active he is, and he still goes out and gets nine offensive rebounds. There was no surprise. [Our guys] were probably surprised they were getting their butts kicked." - NC State head basketball coach Sidney Lowe on getting beat by a Miami team that was in the midst of a seven game losing streak

Playing at Miami offers a special challenge unlike any other in the ACC. Often, the Hurricanes play games and hardly anyone shows up, especially with weather so balmy. Take Saturday's game, for example. Miami whipped N.C. State 80-65 before an announced crowd of 3,099 at the BankUnited Center. The Canes had that many fans turn out for their baseball game Saturday night. With little noise and even less energy in the building, it was as if the Wolfpack (13-10, 3-7 ACC) sleepwalked through most of the game. A week after beating North Carolina, then ranked third in the nation, State couldn't beat a team that was tied for last place in the conference, that was missing three of its best post players, that had lost its past seven games.

NC State Baseball Scalps Tribe 23-0
NC State Sports
NC State picked up right where it left off Friday, jumping out to a commanding 12-0 lead in the first inning Saturday afternoon and coasting to a 23-0 rout of William & Mary in the second game of a three-game series at Doak Field at Dail Park. With the victory, the Wolfpack moved to 2-0 on the season, while the Tribe fell to 0-2. Eric Surkamp (1-0) picked up the win after pitching five complete innings of scoreless baseball. He gave up only five hits, walked one and struck out two. Freshman lefty Jimmy Gillheeney picked up a save, despite the lopsided score, with four dazzling innings. Gillheeney gave up a walk and a hit to the first two batters he faced, then retired the next 12 in order, striking out five. William & Mary starter Michael LaFleur (0-1) was tagged with the loss after a horrendous start to the first inning that saw him surrender eight runs, all earned, on three hits in only a third of an inning. In that time, he walked three, hit two Wolfpack batters and did not record a strikeout. Read More
