The Wolfpack find themselves as favorites on Wednesday night at home as they look to improve on their 4 – 0 record in Raleigh this season. North Carolina State has enjoyed home cookin’ as they have pair of home wins wrapped around a 1 – 1 trip to the Mohegan Sun from the trip to play in the Hall of Fame Classic.
I almost made that trip over there if I’m being honest because I am only a couple of hours from the Sun and who doesn’t love a good road trip through CT at the tail end of Autumn? I know, me too!
Anyway, Nebraska has been double-digit favorites over their last 4 wins and they covered 3 of those carrying momentum into this Wednesday night tilt on the road.
The Huskers are averaging 80.5 PPG over this current 4-game win streak and they are ranked 103rd in the nation putting up 77 PPG for the season. One thing this offense doesn’t do is shoot the 3 very well as you see that 320 number sitting next to their 3-point shooting percentage.
Another thing the Huskers don’t do well is rebound on the defensive end of the floor, and we know this because the stats tell us as much. When your team ranks 349th IN ANYTHING? I don’t care what it is… You gots you some damn issues, mang!
If you haven’t heard the name Bryce McGowans yet, you will know him much better as the season goes along. The dude can ball and he leads this team in pretty much everything! McGowans is averaging 17.7 PPG and 6.9 boards a contest and he buries 85.7% of his free throw attempts and, and, and… Man, do yourself a favor if you watch any Big Ten / ACC Challenge game over these next couple of days. Tune in for this one and look for the cat wearing the #5 jersey!
Alonza Verge is no sippin’ tea to deal with either, and I will go on a limb and say he picks up 20 points tonight to bring his average over the 14.0 PPG mark. Verge is on the verge of 14 a night with 13.6 a contest and Derrick Walker will join them to make it a trio of players averaging double-digits.
Walker is on that 9.9 number and he has to see that knowing that if he puts up 12 – 15 tonight he can join Verge and McGowans as double-digit scorers.
North Carolina State Wolfpack
The Wolfpack are putting just about a point more a night than the Huskers which has them ranked 84th in the land.
Outdoing the Huskers, the Wolfpack has four players averaging double-digits this season and Terquavion Smith could join them with his own big game tonight. Smith is putting up 9.8 points a contest and with 11-12 points tonight he can make it a quintet!
As the season goes on, this team better stay healthy because depth is certainly a concern for Coach Keatts. Dereon Seabron is a stud too, and he will always make his presence felt every night.
Seabron is playing just about 35 minutes a night, however, and that also could be a concern for a star player who will need to get some rest as the season unfolds. You cannot just plow him out there all night and expect him to keep up that pace, he is a damn human being! Hey, can he do it? Well, some dudes can hang out for 35 minutes a night but over the long haul that will start to wear him out, just sayin’.
