Opportunity was there--Wake clicked in fits and starts but didn't play well at the offensive end overall and averaged less than a point per possession. But State couldn't shoot for shit, hitting 28.6% of its threes and 36.6% of its twos. After Dennis Horner cut the Deacs' lead to four, the Pack missed several chip shots on ensuing possessions, let the Deacs score an easy put back after a missed free throw, and they never seriously threatened again.
NC State's bench scored seven points on 2-15 shooting.
