It’s becoming increasingly obvious that N.C. State’s basketball team misses DeShawn Painter a lot more than most people expected when the forward transferred to Old Dominion after last season.

The 6-foot-9, 230-pounder was hardly a star (6.2 points , 4.3 rebounds per game) for the Wolfpack, but his ability to provide productive relief for C.J. Leslie and Richard Howell was important to the team’s late surge and NCAA success.

Painter, from Norfolk, Va., transferred to ODU to help care for an ailing relative and was granted immediate eligibility for his senior season. He’s averaging a team-high 11.3 points and 7.8 rebounds on a 2-16 team that probably will not win more than a handful of games all season.

Junior guard Lorenzo Brown did not provide too many details about the meeting other than the "nonsense" of the past three games — a loss at Maryland, a close home win over Clemson and the loss at Wake Forest — was addressed.

"There's been a lot of nonsense going on between us but we're all grown men," Brown said. "We sat down and talked it out. We're perfectly fine now."

Playing in Chicago, Paige said, “you don’t back down. You always feel like you’re the best.”

He has tried to instill that attitude into his son, Marcus, the freshman point guard at North Carolina.

“I said, ‘Hey man, you know what – the one thing that you don’t realize is every time you go out there you have to compete because everyone on that level is just as good as you are,’ ” the elder Paige said during a recent phone interview. “And that’s a hard thing for him to understand.
