NC State Wolfpack
There could have been dark magic involved in NC State’s 23-point home loss to Virginia Tech on Saturday.
The Wolfpack scored 14 points in the first half and even fewer in the second. It finished with 24 points. That’s how you hold an opponent under 50 and still lose by 23.
NC State didn’t even play terribly, at least as far as turnovers went. It just missed a ton of shots (9-for-54) and didn’t get to the free throw line (six attempts).
Maybe the ‘Pack was saving them all to unleash on North Carolina. Its 81.6 points per game is the 30th-highest mark in America; and that includes Saturday’s 24!
North Carolina Tar Heels
North Carolina looks like a National Title contender. It lost early to Texas on a neutral floor, lost big at Michigan (again, early), and has since lost a tight game to Kentucky on a neutral floor and then a strange home game to Louisville, when the Heels’ offense just really struggled.
There doesn’t seem to be a team in college basketball this season that doesn’t struggle offensively on the rare occasion. UNC’s shooting percentages are all good but none elite. The 87.1 points per game (#4 nationally) are a product of a typically fast pace and few turnovers (296) to assists (412).
What’s more, Roy Williams is finally getting some good ball out of Seventh Woods, the junior point guard, who hasn’t lived up to some’s high expectations when he came to Chapel Hill as a freshman.
He’s no longer hurting his team and, in fact, helping in bits here and there. He finished Saturday’s payback win at Louisville with two rebounds, four assists, no turnovers and two points on one shot.
