Pregame: NC State men's basketball will host fellow Triangle school NC Central Wednesda at PNC Arena. The game, slated to begin at 7 p.m., will be shown on Fox Sports South. 

NC State (2-1) enters the contest coming off an 81-66 win over Campbell last Saturday evening. T.J. Warren, State's leading scorer and rebounder, led the team with 23 points. Tyler Lewis recorded career highs in assists (9) and rebounds (8) while committing just one turnover. The win was the team's sixth straight at home, dating back to last season.

NC Central also sports a 2-1 record after a convincing 62-43 win at Campbell on Monday night. NCCU is led by Jeremy Ingram, who averages 25.7 points per game. Ingram scored 27 points at Cincinnati, 21 in a blowout win over Johnson & Wales and 29 against Campbell.

NC State is 4-0 all-time against NC Central, part of the Pack's 29-0 all-time mark against schools from the MEAC. State boasts an average victory margin of 23.3 in the series, but the last meeting was relatively close. NC State held off NCCU for a 65-60 win in December 2011.

The Starting 5 - The Top 5 Storylines For This Game

1. NONLEAGUE, OUR STATE
Dating back to 2008, NC State is 18-1 against nonleague opponents from North Carolina. That includes three wins over Wednesday's opponent, NC Central. The Wolfpack boasts a flawless 9-0 mark under Mark Gottfried against non-conference NC schools.

2. COMMON OPPONENTS
During this season-opening Global Games Shootout, NC State and NC Central can look at some data against two common opponents. Both teams have played against Cincinnati and Campbell (NC Central played at Campbell on Monday night): Here's how NC State and NC Central stack up against those two teams:

NC State - 69.0 ppg (.444 FG%) | .455 3FG% | +0.5 Reb. Margin
NCCU - 61.5 ppg (.400 FG%) | .250 3FG% | +1.0 Reb. Margin

3. #TonyBuckets
Sophomore forward T.J. Warren, a 2013 ACC All-Freshmen Team pick, stands fifth in the ACC with 21.0 points per game. Known for his scoring efficiency, the 6-8 sophomore has picked up his game in other areas. In addition to averaging 21.0 points per contest, Warren leads the team with 7.0 rebounds and 2.7 steals per game. In the season opener, he shot 13-for-20 from the floor to score 27 points with eight rebounds.

    45 free throws. 4 players fouled out. Against Central? Will they have enough players to play... View More

    With the refs calling all the reach-ins and hand checks, a lot of games will be foul fests. Until coaches and players adjust, there will not be much rhythm to games, and players - like some of the Central players - will get a lot of their points at the charity stripe.

    Congrats NCCU! Way to go Leville, and E. Poobie Chapman! Time to party at Washington terrace!... View More

    I'll tell ya what, Toddler, NCCU came to play! I only caught the second half and OT, but Central can flat out ball. This was actually a good game - liked seeing the fast breaks, etc. Central could beat more than a few teams in the ACC.

    NCSUcz was hoping the SEC would take them, then hoping the Southern Conference might take them. Now they've got another petition on PackPride to President Obama, this one asking him to get them into the Big South Conference.

  • Mustangfan4life Nov 20, 10:34 p.m.

    So happy for LeVelle and the NCCU Eagle basketball team! Proud Alumni!!!!!!

  • dsalter Nov 20, 10:27 p.m.

    Big win for NCCU....no surprise for my Wolfpack. Everyone knew it would be a struggle this year, but by mid-season there should be a noticable change.

  • dubious Nov 20, 10:19 p.m.

    Well, I picked on the Heels for being eaten by a cupcake, so I'll be the first to admit that the Pack played some ugly basketball. I think there were more fouls called than shots made in the first half. That's no excuse. The refs called it tight both ways and players need to adapt. I believe Central started three seniors and 2 juniors and they schooled our new kids. The good news is I saw some real talent peeking through all that inexperience. Cat Barber is going to be a good one.

  • heelgrad1978 Nov 20, 10:18 p.m.

    Glad to see the Belmont loss is keeping the tarholes shut.

    — Posted by buster102007

    NOT keeping me shut. Much rather lose to Belmont than NC Central. Come on!!!

    Wolf pups!

    — Posted by ayby0611

    then you are a true tar heel fan, happy when another team loses while our team is in the gutter. smh.

  • heelgrad1978 Nov 20, 10:17 p.m.

    This is almost as bad as our lost to Belmont. Was State overrated too and ranked in the top 15 or just us? I hope they don't use the excuse of missing FTs like our fan base did either.
