    LSmith replied to a thread Big OT win in Women's Basketball
    I googled "NC State basketball" today like I do most days to catch the latest news on Coach Keatts and the men's team. Today the 1rst headline I saw was "NC State stands alone as the only undefeated team". I mentioned in a post last season that I thought Wes Moore is the best hire Debbie Yow has made at NC State. Per Ken's post in the Wake thread of the men's forum I willfully admit I don't get as excited about the success of the women's program as the men's. I have always appreciated women as athletes. I dated a basketball player when I was in college (a women's basketball player to be clear lol.) I have 2 nieces who played college softball and a brother and brother in law who spent many years coaching travel softball. I will concede however Coach Moore and the women's team deserve our respect. They are the best performing team of the revenue sports that we have seen at NC State in a long time. Maybe since the 1974 men's basketball team .

    Could not disagree with your post more Ken, there are absolutely must win games every season in every sport. Back to the game, big, big win for the Pack. Had to have this one after the WF debacle.

    On Thursday, the Pack concludes their three game road streak at Louisville. The Cards shocked UNC at the Dean Dome, handing the Heels their worst home loss with Roy Williams as a coach, and followed it up with a ten point home win over Boston College. Game time is 20:00 eastern, broadcast on the ACC Network. Ken

    Anyone who engages in "exultation or misery" mode this season is going to ride a rollercoaster all year long! No single ACC game is "must win," and no single ACC game is "can't win." We ride the train and see what the destination is. The NBA is regarded as a "make or miss" league. If you hit your shots you win, and if you don't then you lose. If we play our game and execute it, then there isn't a team in the nation the Wolfpack cannot defeat this year. I'll bet my money that this means we finish in the upper quarter of the conference standings, go to the Dance, and perhaps even put on a run in the conference tournament and national tournament. Enjoy the ride! Ken

    Their schedule is back loaded. So, it is possible that this winning streak continues. The team does face nationally ranked conference opponents pretty heavily in the last two weeks of the regular season. The only way they move up from #8 is to beat some of those teams. Ken

    Well, for me personally, between a kid in 4th grade, one in college, 50% international travel, and trying to maintain a house, 2 BMWs and 20yo 4Runner in the 50% I am home, I have time to maybe follow 1 sport at a time. I can count on 1 hand the number of football and basketball games I've been able to watch this season. I didn't watch a single Panthers game this year (appears I missed nothing). Glad they're doing well. Moore is a winner. Matt<---typing this while eating chicken curry in a bar in Suzuka Japan.

    Ken Stallings replied to a thread @ Wake in Men's Basketball
    Nothing is more dangerous than a wounded animal. In a weakened state, playing on an emotional high before a home audience, basketball is the sport most affected by a home crowd, even more than is football. The dome stadium effect narrowed that gap, but basketball arenas have always been enclosed, and the sound reverberates. That's a big reason why Reynolds was such a huge home advantage. The acoustics were such that 12,400 yelling fans would create such a din of noise that it would unglue even the best opponents. I saw it affect Michael Jordan and Dean Smith in person. Now, Wake didn't have anything like that kind of home court advantage last night. Their primary ally was being 0-3 in the ACC and having the specter of 0-4 and 0-2 at home staring them in the face. In short, Wake played their best game of the year, by far. And we shot very poorly in the first half, missing a lot of open shots. Losing early games to lower echelon teams is as much an indication of an inexperienced team, and over time such players can start to learn how to play at the college level. Remember the times that the Les Robinson Invitational Players would put it all together for one rousing effort to beat ranked teams at Reynolds? It didn't turn their season around much, did it? Nor, frankly, did it torpedo said ranked team's season. Every game in the ACC is a war, and every battle is a must win in equal measure. But, no one is going to win every ACC game. I figured we would win this one, but we didn't. Just dug too deep a hole through poor shooting. This three game road stretch is the toughest part of our conference schedule, and I don't think the next two games are must win, either, but I do think we need to win about 60% of conference games this year to have a chance to finish in the top four. One more point. Hardly anyone here is paying the slightest attention to the women's team, and I wonder why. Is it simply a gender issue at play?

    Also takes him firmly out of coach of the year considerarion. As it should. You can't lose to a 7-8 Weak Florist team and win an end of the season award like that. This Wake team lost to Gardner-Webb and Houston Baptist. At home. They have fielded some real stinker teams in my day. This one ranks near the worst.

    The game is blacked out in my area so have not been able to watch it and kind of glad I cant. One of the worse defensive teams in the nation has held us to just 27 points the 1rst half. Wake leads by 15 with a 42- 27 lead and fortunately they have not hit a 3 pointer yet going 0-4. Of course we are 1-14 from beyond the arc so a lot of bricks being laid at the Lawrence Joel.

    Derreck started a thread Levi Jones in Football
    Just an FYI, the Pack has landed transfer LB Levi Jones. Jones was a 4 Star prospect in 2017 from Texas that ended up at USC. Levi was dismissed from the team at USC for a violation of team rules. He was arrested for public intoxication in Pasadena just before being dismissed so I am sure that is what led to the dismissal. Jones is already enrolled in school but has yet to be listed on the team roster. Jones is the son of former NFL Cowboy Robert Jones and is the nephew of former NFL QB Jeff Blake.

    Wolfpack starts the first of three straight ACC road games at Wake Forest on 15 Jan. Game time is 20:00. Wake is currently 0-3 in conference play, having dropped two on the road at Miami and Georgia Tech, and losing their home game to Duke. The Pack will need to focus to get their second ACC road win, but it is one of the more available opportunities. Ken

    You got to bring it every game in the ACC. The holes beat Pitt by 20. Pitt beat Lville. Lville beat the holes by 20. It is shaping up to be a crazy season. The one thing I feel good about is we under Keatts will bring it every game. We brought it Tuesday but just did not hit the shots. A loss today would have mean the holes beat us twice. That did not happen but I believe we played a part by our effort Tuesday night in the holes big loss today. As Ken mentioned this was a big gut out win today being 2 players down for most of the game. From what I heard Markell is ok and hopefully will be back Tuesday. I believe Wyatt felt the Pitt player was trying to kick him and his emotions got the best of him. He has got to be better than that.

    Ken Stallings replied to a thread Pitt 1/12 in Men's Basketball
    This ended up becoming a gut check game due to a lot of adverse developments. Wyatt Walker was tossed two minutes into the game for what was ruled as a flagrant foul. DJ Funderburk then had to play a lot more minutes than he normally does, but he ended up being the player of the game! Then, Markell Johnson left the game with a back injury after only playing nine minutes in the first half! Pitt shot much better than they normally do and it wasn't wide open shots either. Especially in the second half, they threw up a lot of off balance shots that went in. Despite all of that, the Pack methodically pulled even and then went on a game clinching run. Pitt got away with a lot of overly physical play. Markell Johnson got undercut to cause his back injury and the ejection of Walker was a case of Walker losing his composure. I hope he learns not to do that again. This team's depth is the only reason they could suffer two starters being out of the game before the midpoint of the first half and still win!

    Just did not hit our shots. Our hustle put us in place several times to take the lead and have a chance but we did not hit the shots to go over the hump. For us to be great and beat very good teams Markell has to be great and take over the game like he did against Auburn and Vandy. He just did not have it last night. Funderburk was a beast last night on both ends of the court. Need that from him every game. We will be alright. It is early January.
