This was coming, this was pretty much inevitable, basically. I feel good that it happened today, if I’m being honest. Al Freeman was great and he helped the Wolfpack pull off this improbable win. Hell yeah.
This was an exceptional collective effort but no doubt Al Freeman waking from his jump shooting coma made a huge difference; NC State is not even remotely in the position to push this game to overtime without Al’s shooting.
It all worked today, and you do not see this all that often in Chapel Hill. Enjoy it, folks. I sure as hell will.
