It was a tough week for NC State. They lost their marquee home matchup against Lousiville, suffering their worst first period scoring of the season and never being able to recover from it, losing 66-59. Then, the hangover extended to their next home game versus Georgia Tech, losing that one 65-61.

The momentum was regained at Miami, with the Pack winning 50-48.

Still, the Pack's record is a gaudy 23-3 (12-3 ACC).
