    Need to change the name of this thread to UMass vs NC State. Much better performance. Still a diamond in the rough but things are looking really good.

    Not impressed at all. Like the announcer said, that type of play might get you past these... View More

    Agreed. The potential for this team is off the charts but right now we (State) seem to be playing VERY sloppy. Unforced turnovers, being out rebounded by a smaller team, and lack of execution by upperclassman are all things that need to be addressed, and in a hurry.

    Granted, it's pretty ignorant of someone to expect a team to be in mid-late season form when they're only in their second game. Heck, just a few weeks ago UNC was LOSING to Shaw in the second half.

    You know what they say...14th time could be a charm.

    NC State had more combined talent than Penn State could muster. Even though Lorenzo Brown and Scott Wood played poorly and Howell got himself benched for early fouls, the rest of the team, mostly the freshmen, stepped up to the challenge and PSU did not have the defense to stop Leslie, Purvis and Warren. This team did not step on their opponents' throats and crushed until the game was over, but they did enough to win and allow coach Gottfried to substitute the back end of the bench. De Thaey played better than I expected and Vandenburg still needs more playing time to get more comfortable on court. Considering this team will have several more opportunities for the lower level subs to get playing time, this team can really get itself into a good postseason position for ACC and NCAA. The rest of the ACC better watch out for the Wolfpack.

    Sometimes it's hard to motivate players. I don't think it will be hard to motivate them against UNC or Duke.

    Not impressed at all. Like the announcer said, that type of play might get you past these cupcakes, but it's not going to cut it against Duke and UNC. They'd better tighten up.

    State played very poorly in stretches and a couple (Brown and Leslie) did not play up to potential. Considering the down game for some, this was a big win for the team. The fun has started.

    State won by 17. Good call Hokie

    I was lucky once again. I'll take a win over BC on Saturday at BC. If the Hokies lose this one, we burn 20 years of going to a Bowl game. Logan Thomas has not done the job. Beamer and coaches still believe. 15 Int's tells this ol coach that this isn't right.
