Pence's Quick Thoughts

If you're an NC State fan, be slightly worried.  Look, NC State should win, but Penn State is the type of team that the Pack could slip up against.  Penn State plays a slow tempo (65 poss/gm) and they're a decent team (#83 Pomeroy).  Watch Penn State's Tim Frazier, who scored 23 points in their opener including 17-18 from the FT line.  That said, NC State is more talented and unlike some past seasons the Pack should be able to win when not at their best.

North Carolina State lived up to its preseason hype - at least for one game. Now the sixth-ranked Wolfpack will have a chance to test their mix of talented freshmen and veterans on the bigger stage of an in-season tournament.

N.C. State meets Penn State on Thursday in the quarterfinals of the Puerto Rico Tip-Off.

The preseason pick to win the ACC, the Wolfpack (1-0) easily took care of Miami (Ohio) at home on Friday, winning 97-59. It was their highest point total since a 99-44 win against Campbell on Nov. 26, 2004.

Six N.C. State players scored in double figures while the team shot 61.4 percent from the floor, thanks in part to a 31-8 advantage in fast-break points.
