According to the Sporting News, N. C. State point guard Lorenzo Brown is questionable for what is shaping up to be a must-win game for the Wolfpack Saturday at PNC Arena. The Hurricanes, off to a 6-0 start in league play, can bury the Wolfpack's hopes of a regular season championship with a win, and this game is one of the Pack's last opportunities to boost their NCAA tournament seeding by picking off a team with a high RPI.
Brown's ankle sprain could not have come at a worse time. Not only did his team struggle to maintain a lead against Virginia after Brown left the game (the Pack led by seven at halftime only to lose by three), they also have a road trip to Duke looming after hosting the Hurricanes.
Brown is averaging 12.7 points, 6.9 assists, 4.3 rebounds, and 2.1 steals per game. His assists mark leads the ACC and he is second in steals per game. Brown is eighth in minutes per game even after logging just 10 minutes in the loss to the Cavaliers.
