    ...and PackPass doesn't work. What a shocker. How can a school that is so in the dark ages claim to be technologically advanced? I get more and more embarrassed by my NC State degrees every day.

    Wolfpack leads 7-5.

    Smith with 4
    Wood with 3

    Julius Mays is checking in for CJ Williams after the break.

    Farnold Degand is not on the bench. Not sure what to make of that.

    Not doubting you WPH...But Yahoo has Javi with 2, the first 2 of the game. Smith with 2, and Wood with 3.

    Not that it even matters, as long as we come out on top.

    Williams once again doing next to nothing offensively. I don't understand it. He lit it up uver the summer. I hope he can get it going. We are going to need his offense. I know he is good all around player be he needs to SCORE.

  29. WolfCop said...
    November 12, 2009 at 7:57 PM

    Man, this is funny. My PackPass was running crappy all half. And now that it's the half and the old man is out there jacking up 3's it comes in perfectly.

    How is our ball control / turnovers?

  31. Wolfpack Hoops said...
    November 12, 2009 at 8:09 PM

    State had 5 turnovers in the first half...but there could have been a lot more. A lot of passes were deflected.

  32. Wolfpack Hoops said...
    November 12, 2009 at 8:11 PM

    FT% is not good at all and FG% is not good either. And, yes, Williams needs to be more assertive.

    Leave it to State to not be able to get a simple thing like streaming an event right. Not only do they supress the ability of radio stations to stream the game (for free) but they charge you and the quality is beyond awful. I will ask for a refund but I doubt I'll even get a response. Like most things NCSU, once they've got your money it's basically stfu...

    State just went on a run. At 3:42 they are up 63-46. After two straight fast break buckets, GA St. called a timeout. Wood and Mays finished on the break.

    Anon,

    Yes, mine is atrocious. Of course they gladly took my money and offered this response when I reported that it wasn't even playing at first I got this response:

    "Be sure to select the video event, as that is all you will have access to, on the media player it says 'watch now'."

    Wow, really? Using the internet requires basic reading skills and a familiarity with clicking links? Thanks you've been a great help.

    Where was Johnny Thomas?

  62. redfred said...
    November 12, 2009 at 9:47 PM

    Degand and Thomas?

  63. Wolfpack Hoops said...
    November 12, 2009 at 9:50 PM

    Degand was held out because Coach Lowe wasn't pleased with his academics. It isn't a matter of eligibility.

    Not quite sure about Thomas. He didn't really play hardly at all in the exhibition either.

  64. JimValvano said...
    November 12, 2009 at 9:50 PM

    yeah...Degand and Thomas.

    Anyone?

    Yes, Go Pack video was terrible. Hopefully they'll fix it before the next game.

    I know that it will take a while for the team to get used to playing with each other but i was expecting a little bit more scoring. I wasn't at the game so I don't know if it was just missed shots but 69 points just doesn't sound good to me for a fast paced team.

  67. Wolfpack Hoops said...
    November 12, 2009 at 10:28 PM

    41 FG% isn't an equation for a high scoring performance. The Pack kept the turnovers fairly low with 9, so that wasn't the issue. The absence of Degand did slow up the pace a little bit.

    I tunned into TNT to check out the Lebron and D-Wade show and it's turning into the JJ Hickson show, must be something he learned in raleigh if I were a power forward I would go get some of that teaching. Cothron rules!

  69. redfred said...
    November 12, 2009 at 10:45 PM

    He might not be as fast as Degand, but is Javi not pushing the ball?

    I listened, I know the shooting was atrocious, and for both teams, but did the Pack look lost without Tracy Smith in the game? It sure SOUNDED that way on the radio broadcast.
