Caution: Falling Defense

After last night's historically bad defensive performance, I made a few guesses as to how NC State's efficiency numbers would be affected. I figured we'd drop a good 15-20 spots, but that has proven to be a conservative prediction.

NC State came into the Carolina game ranked 43rd in adjusted defensive efficiency; today, NC State ranks 71st.

The Wolfpack also plunged in the RPI.

UNC went from 17th in adjusted offensive efficiency to 4th, vaulting it over the likes of Villanova, Texas and UConn.
