Posted November 9, 2012

NC State 97, Miami (OH) 59; FINAL

In clean-up time, Thomas de Thaey was able to put up 10 points. NC State fell just short of 100 points, but a flurry of late shots showed they were trying. 

NC State 82, Miami (OH) 45; 3:35 2nd

Rodney Purvis makes his first defining play as a member of the Wolfpack as he was pure on a three and got fouled, completing a 4-point play.  Vandenberg also getting court run and playing as tall as he's supposed to with a block, rebound and put-back dunk in a 30-second stretch.

NC State 72, Miami (OH) 41; 6:06 2nd

Richard Howell is finishing with dunks, the threes are falling, Tyler Lewis is running transition and the Wolfpack lead has exploded to 33 points. Howell has also earned hid double-double by pulling down his 10 rebound. He also has 16 points. 

NC State 61, Miami (OH) 35; 12:10 2nd

NC State has only played seven players but all have started finning the box score. A Tyler Lewis lay-up on the break forced a Miami timeout. Richard Howell and Lorenzo Brown are each knocking on the double-double door.

NC State 50, Miami (OH) 27; 15:38 2nd

Miami finally hit a field goal as they knocked down a 3 right out of the half, but NC State offense is still too much. A Lorezo Brown-to-CJ Leslie alley-oop put some punctuation on a transition possession  before the under-16 timeout. 

NC State 41, Miami (OH) 22; HALF

NC State is playing with high pressure on the defensive end, limiting Miami to just one bucket in the last 8:30-plus of the first half.

Offensively NC State is getting to the line having already attempted seven free throws. Miami has committed eight fouls and played 10 players.

NC State 29, Miami (OH) 20; 7:59 1st

Tyler Lewis came off the bench and made his Wolfpack debut, missing his first field goal attempt. Scott Wood continued to lead NC State with 8 points.

NC State 17, Miami (OH) 8; 15:40 1st

UNC 67, Gardner-Webb 54; 3:52 2nd

Gardner-Webb is refusing to go away. The latest run is little fault of UNC, but the Bulldogs are starting to make shots. James Michael McAdoo was also on the bench for much of the run and has since checked back in.

UNC 59, Gardner-Webb 45; 7:47 2nd

JP Tokoto has proven he can finish strong. Still showing a knack to find the lane. Joel James is a little over aggressive having four fouls in just 11 minutes on the court. 

UNC 51, Gardner-Webb 39; 11:45 2nd

At the under-12 timeout, James Michael McAdoo has recorded a double-double and set a new career high in points with 21. while the lead isn't growing rapidly, the pace and momentum are completely with the Heels.

UNC 47, Gardner-Webb 31; 17:07 2nd

UNC hit their first three-pointer of the game a Reggie Bullock knocked it down. On a personnel note, Joel James got the second-half start for UNC and made his early presence known with solid defense. 

Dexter Strickland making the most of turnovers with three transition buckets. 

UNC 38, Gardner-Webb 26; HALF

James Michael McAdoo has shown dominant tendencies in the first half with 15 points and establishing body on virtually every rebound chance. Dexter Strickland has chipped in with seven points at the break. 

Despite multiple turnovers, UNC was able to grab a lead in the latter stages of the half with a combination of hot shooting and ice cold Bulldogs shooting.

UNC 30, Gardner-Webb 19; 4:34 1st

Gardner-Webb has gone ice cold from the floor going 1-for their last 13. For UNC, J.P Tokoto has made an impact in his first collegiate experience showing he's not afraid to drive baseline.

UNC 22, Gardner-Webb 19; 7:13 1st

Gardner-Webb took a lead on UNC before the Heels went on a 12-3 run, building a 22-13 lead. But more turnovers by the Tar Heels - 6 in the first 12 minutes - have kept the game close.

UNC 10, Gardner-Webb 10; 14:14 1st

James Michael McAdoo is getting work done early for UNC with a block and two baskets to lead the Tar Heels. Four UNC turnovers, however, have kept the Bulldogs within reach early.

 

 

Duke 74, Georgia St. 55; FINAL

Poor free throw shooting by the Devils helped to keep the game close in the final minutes. Tyler Thornton found his stroke though as another three has him at 13 points. 

Mason Plumlee had 19 points and 14 rebounds to lead Duke.

Duke 61, Georgia St. 40; 7:32 2nd

    Notice how many different combos Roy played? Typical early season Roy. The free throw situation has to change though. Dook also did not look sharp. State has the definite edge this early season.

  • Alex25 Nov 9, 2012

    Pace yourselves....peak in March...

  • StunGunn Nov 9, 2012

    I like what I'm seeing in the second half; the guys seem more comfortable, are gaining confidence and playing better.

  • nyyankee Nov 9, 2012

    Lets go Wolfpack, The team is playing GREAT together and we are proud of you!!!!!!

  • StunGunn Nov 9, 2012

    Well, Big Mac has 15 first half points. Good to see Roy fired up.

  • StunGunn Nov 9, 2012

    What a difference a year makes; or, should I say, what a difference losing four key players to the NBA makes. The Heels are definitely a work in progress. I like what I'm seeing out of Marcus Paige (wearing that lucky #5) and also Tokoto. Strick just nailed a 3 - good to see.
