After a terrible start marked by lazy defense and timid offense, NC State woke up to beat the Charlotte 49ers. The keys to the win – Hodge’s overall excellent play and leadership, along with Andrew Brackman’s offensive rebounding and free throw shooting. Oh, and don’t foget Cam’s defense on Plavich and numerous key shots that kept State in the ballgame in the first 6-7 minutes of the second half.
Hopefully this will be a good learning experience, and we won’t come out flat against UConn. NC State must play MUCH better if we expect to have a chance against UConn, but NC State is capable of doing so.
