The one consistency about North Carolina State's basketball team over the last six weeks has been the overreaction to every Wolfpack result.

If NCSU wins, the Pack are headed to the Final Four. When they lose, it's the end of the world as we know it.

Not that references to the legendary rock band REM are necessary, though its catalog offers some intriguing sound bites that could well describe the circus that has been Wolfpack basketball this season. From "Shiny Happy People" storming the floor after beating Duke in January to "Hollow Man," which explains some of supremely talented forward C.J. Leslie's performances, including his most recent in a 76-65 loss at North Carolina.
