Pro-Am Tidbits

We were unable to make it out to the Pro-Am last night, but their blog revealed that a couple of NC State players helped carry their teams last night. Marcus Melvin's Lucky 7 squad entered the night with a untarnished record of 1-0. Unfortunately their opponnet was Team Duhon, who entered the night with a 2-0 record. Despite Marcus Melvin's 13 points, Team Duhon added another 'W' to the win column. Duke's Mason Plumlee's 17 points led Team Duhon to a 68-58 victory.

In the 8pm game Team P.J. Tucker came out searching for their first win. C.J. Williams put up a strong performance of 15 points, which marks the third time in three games that he has scored 10+ points. Unfortunately UNC's Ed Davis was too much for Team P.J. Tucker to handle. He scored 18 points, to lead all scorers, and WR Starkey left Team P.J. Tucker with an 0-3 record.

    Julius probably still out sick. Great to hear Cj is making strides this summer- we REALLY need to have confident and productive minutes out of at least 3 backcourt players each night out this up coming year to truly change the fortune of Coach Lowes program.

    His vision is clearly stated;
    1. Need up to 3 players on the court who can create opportunities for themselves and get their team mates an added advantage, ie, one PG, one combo guard and one shooting guard on the floor.
    2. Play inside out; might sound counter to the first argument but the threat that up to three perimeter players can take their man off the dribble, play the pick n' roll, our pop a jumper in your face, opens up added passing lanes to your bigs, and Coach Lowe wants them to get at least one but probably additional ones each possession.

    Those two clear guidelines we has stated repeatedly for some time now. You don't need Lee Fowler, the media, Statefansnation or message boards to tell us who the Coach is/is not and whether or not he has the plan and capability to lead us to victory over the ACC and beyond. He has it all in place but the last peice of the puzzle is part of what is going on at NCCU this summer anid in the weight room/practice courts of NC State.

    We either get CJ, Julius, Farn and Javi along with the incoming perimeter guys to play up to these standards or we are just going to be in for another frustrating up-down type season. At a certain point it is on the players shoulders to follow through. I have complete confidence that this group will get the job done and show us some well played ball.
