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.

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

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.

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 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.

    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.

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

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

  • GunnyGoesArrrgh Nov 9, 7:50 p.m.

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

  • GunnyGoesArrrgh Nov 9, 7:46 p.m.

    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.
