    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.

    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.

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

  • dsalter Nov 20, 2013

    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, 2013

    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.

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

  • heelgrad1978 Nov 20, 2013

    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.
