-- State hit 20-of-28 field goal attempts in the second half, including 4-of-4 from outside, and took great care of the basketball. Needless to say, they were crazy-efficient at the offensive end, averaging 1.4 points per trip. And they would've been even better than that had they hit more free throws.
-- The Macrowave woke up in a huge way, scoring 17 points on 8-10 shooting in the final 20 minutes, while Javi was a perfect 4-4 from the field en route to a 12-point half. I think those were two of the finest halves those guys have ever put together.
-- Josh Davis hustled his way to 9 points, 6 boards (4 offensive), and 2 steals in 16 minutes. Dennis Horner carried the Wolfpack through the first half and Farnold Degand provided a nice spark in his first game back.
-- It was a good defensive effort save the rebounding. Turnovers were a huge key in the second half; State forced a few early miscues to help get the rally going, and Marquette ended up with 10 second half turnovers to the Pack's 4. Between the poor shooting and 27% turnover rate, the Golden Eagles averaged less than a point per possession in the 2nd.
