Ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww. Ew ew ew ew don't look oh god why did I look ewwwwwwwwwww.

It is kind of impressive in its own way. I mean, we almost certainly won't see numbers this bad again this season, leaving us nowhere to go but up from here. It's a brand new day full of possibilities! But until State can actually wipe the slate clean, best not to dwell on this result too much. Try to picture instead a very large, very unusually talented puppy making jump shots, which is as basketball intended.

NC State is back on the road next, which I suppose is good since it seems the Wolfpack is only capable of picking up key wins away from PNC Arena. A victory over UVA would have given State a little breathing room ahead of its Winston-Salem visit, but we couldn't be havin' that, now could we. A loss at Wake and the Pack is staring a 1-4 start to league play in the face.
