NC State went on the road and won a huge contest at Syracuse, 74-70. In a back-and-forth game, State came up with some big shots - especially from deep - to pull this one out.
Sam Hunt (14 pts), Markell Johnson (16 pts, 5 ast, 5 reb), and Al Freeman (17 pts, 5 ast) knocked down some clutch shots down the stretch for State. The win puts the Wolfpack back above the .500 mark in ACC play (7-6) heading into a Saturday match-up with Wake Forest in Winston-Salem.
This is a very short recap (sorry), but here’s video of the game winner from Markell Johnson:
Yes. Yes, that’s nice.
Road win against a top-50 RPI team. I suppose that’s good.
