State improved to 3-0 and advanced to the Charleston Classic Championship versus Georgetown Sunday (7:30pm, ESPNU) with its 78-65 win over George Mason.
It wasn’t always pretty, and ESPNU didn’t waste an HD camera on this one — what is this, 2006? — and introduced Lorenzo “Browd” at the beginning of the game, but Ryan Harrow led all scorers with 14 points off the bench, combined with Richard Howell’s double-double — 13 points, 11 rebounds — to pull away late.
Update on Tracy Smith from WTVD’s Mark Armstrong:

There’s a lot of good stuff on the front page of the blog: SFN regular Cowdog’s Can’t-Miss read about the State-Carolina rivalry, NCState Pride’s Way Too Early Look at the ACC Standings, Swofford’s 89% Pay Hike, Bruce Pearl’s suspension, and the Week 12 AET Index.
Also, make sure to spend some time discussing all of this and much more on the SFN Forums.
Go to Hell Carolina!
