NC State opened up their play in Spain today with an 83-76 win over CB Torrejon.  While Rodney Purvis hasn't been cleared to play by the NCAA, Lorenzo Brown did play despite knee surgery in July.  Not only did Brown play, but he played well, leading the team in scoring with 25 points.  Freshman, TJ Warren scored 20 points in a starting role that likely would have gone to Purvis if he were eligible.

Mark Gottfried spoke about the experience for his freshmen:

"There's so much to learn with a team when you start in October," said Gottfried. "Sometimes it's four or five games before you learn about you team. The nice thing about having these games is, like tonight, the score and time became an issue and we had T.J. and Tyler on the floor and I wanted Tyler on the floor, so he could learn from that situation.

"It's a great trip for these young guys."
