Box Score

NC State followed up its insane 28-2 run against Texas on Monday with a 20-2 run against Elon that turned a four-point deficit into a 14-point lead in the first half. From there, the Phoenix never mounted much of a challenge and the Pack cruised to victory despite a average shooting night. They took care of the basketball and killed Elon on the glass at both ends, which made it tough for Elon to rally on a night where the threes weren't falling at a bizarrely high rate.

Lorenzo Brown led State with 21 points on 9-16 shooting, Scott Wood hit five threes, and Calvin added 13 points. Wood was the only State player to hit a three in the game, and so far at least, this team's problem is the same as it was a year ago: who do they rely on to make outside shots other than Wood?
