After Dennis Horner hit a jump shot with 13:22 left in the second half, State missed 12 consecutive shots and generally stood idly by as Miami went on a 27-11 run over the next 12 minutes to seal the deal. That drought, a -10 turnover margin, and more uneven officiating--including another bizarre intentional foul call--proved far too much for the Wolfpack to overcome. So it was an altogether unpleasant afternoon, highlighted only by Tim Brandt's impeccable comedic timing.
