    It was a game of two halves the way I saw it. State ran the floor hard, passed the ball, and moved the ball to the open shooter. Loads of fast baskets from a missed shot or rebound led to the beat down in the 1st half. They didn't play with similar intensity in the 2nd half. UNC creeped back in, and made it a game. State came close to blowing 28 points. Too much talent to allow this IMO. Gott needs to give some a few more minutes. Build the bench. Build it with a few minutes here and there.

    Agree, but that was only part of the problem. Carolina went through a LONG stretch where they either didn't miss, or they missed, but put back the rebound for a score. That had nothing to do with State not attacking on offense. That just hindered State's ability to keep matching Carolina's scoring.

    That is true & they are still Carolina.

    I was actually glad to see Carolina play so well in the second half. They scored on nearly every offensive possession, and State scored enough to hang on for the win. I think State will benefit from this kind of win more than they would have with the 40 point win that appeared to be in the making midway through the second half.

    Carolina is getting better. I'm not too excited at the thoughts of playing them later, after more improvement, and in their building.

    State put on a clinic in the 1st half. One of the best teams in transition that I have seen this entire year. They need to play more guys for game experience. I saw this against Wake when a few got into foul trouble. A few minutes for some would help them down the line.

    The Miami game should be epic. I like State at home by 4.

    I wish. Miami can be formidable, especially with that big guy back.

    It IS funny how sometimes you match up well against certain teams. Glad we got them only once this year. In Raleigh.

    Congrats to the Pack - your guys played a really good game. I think the atmosphere was terrific - fans amped up, but the work was done on the court, by your players, and they did what they were supposed to do - beat the Heels. Thanks to all the State fans who are gracious in their victory.

    an interesting fact regarding the miami/State rivalry...both sendek and lowe(yes, even lowe!) had winning records against miami...with Gott, miami was swept last year....miami is one of those teams that State always plays well, for whatever reason

    Yep. As Ovies pointed out on WRAL this morning, when we got the 28 point lead, we started settling for jumpshots. Should have kept attacking inside. THAT, IMHWPO, is what led to UNC's run to cut the lead to nerve-racking suspense near the end.
