The Wolfpack, on the other hand, seemed to revel in playing their version of the "Princeton" game, and they had the tools to make the offense sing. NU would close up the middle and someone would sink a 3 from the arc. NC State made the first 5 threes they shot!
The other thing that stood out was the hair trigger foul calls against the Wildcats. It was almost as if the refs decided that the NU Big 10 game might be a little too rough for their ACC boys, so Jimmy Maley had 2 fouls on him in the first minutes of the game. NU did not shoot a free throw in the first half!
More commentary later - but this one raised more questions than it answered.
