In a game that was closer than it should have been:
Senior C.J. Williams, playing in his 100th career game, scores a career-high 21 points as NC State wins another throwback game at Reynolds Coliseum, 65-60. The Pack returns to action on Saturday against third-ranked Syracuse at the RBC Center.
This victory propels the Wolfpack into their next game, against Syracuse, which should be the number one team in the nation when the new polls come out. There hasn’t been a non-conference number one ranked team to play inside the RBC Center before. The place needs to be electric on Saturday.
