Not much running occurred, if the slow pace of the game is any indication. But even though we were not able to dictate pace (get used to it), it was nonetheless a solid opener for the offense. McCauley and Costner carried the load and played well:

Costner 124.9 28.8 27.5 70.0
McCauley 132.5 26.7 25.5 55.6

Tracy Smith was productive off the bench, scoring 7 points and grabbing 4 rebounds in 9 minutes.

Mark the occasion:

The Wolfpack had a 34-22 edge in rebounding and an 11-5 edge in offensive rebounds against a team with only one player taller than 6-8.
