NC State Routs Maryland Eastern Shore 93-61

Congratulations to David Thompson, possibly the best college basketball player ever

Game Summary:

NC State was heavily favored and beat the spread for a change. UMES is a bad basketball team, in mid rebuild, and we were expected to dominate – and we did. The only blemish on an otherwise total domination on the stat sheet was our inexplicably poor free throw shooting.

Four Factors

Team Efg% TO % OReb% FTA/FGA
Team Efg% TO % OReb% FTA/FGA
NCS 51.3 13.8 30.9 30.5
UMES 42.5 19.2 28.6 26.1

Overall Takeaways:

  • MJ Rice saw his first playing time tonight and gave us reason for excitement. He only missed one shot, he hit a 3PT, and led the team in rebounding. Once he gets the rust off, he might be pretty good. I think he’s a keeper.
  • This was a game to get a lot of court time for the bench and 10 players got 9 or more minutes.
  • The team had it’s best shooting night of the season at 59.3%

Keatts Comments

  • We wanted to play well in front of the GOAT.
  • Very pleased with the way the team played, the only complaint was the FT shooting.
  • Good to see MJ Rice play well. He started slow but got better as the game progressed.
