Box Score

True to form, North Carolina Central neither made twos (9-35, 25.7%) nor prevented its opponent from making them (State shot 65.8% inside).  After the coaching staff slapped everyone upside the head at halftime, NC State dispensed with the outside jumper entirely and patiently worked the ball into the delicious nougat center of the Eagles' zone defense.  The Macrowave matched the number of field goals made by Central in the second half all by himself.

NCCU 65.5 20.0 11.9 26.9 43.3

Brief notes:

-- Javi was held out of the starting lineup for violating a team rule. 

-- Richard Howell finished with six rebounds in 14 minutes. 

-- There were just nine available boards at NC State's end in the second half.  The Pack grabbed four of them.

-- Josh Davis made all four of his free throw attempts.  I guess he just needs a practice-like atmosphere.
