NC State played their third straight game at full strength and for the third straight game were able to empty the bench. The Wolfpack shot 48.5% from the field and 47% from beyond the arc to take down McNeese State 89-57. The Pack were led by Dennis Smith Jr (23 pts) and Maverick Rowan (15 pts).
Play of The Game: Let’s just take a look at the recent alley-oop chemistry of Markel Johnson and Shaun Kirk.
Player Of The Game: Chris Corchiani Jr
Corchiani played two minutes, put up four shots, and hit a buzzer beater to end the night with four points. Not an advanced stats guy but I’d say that is good.
The Wolfpack (10-2) will get a nice break for Christmas and return to action on December 28th to host Rider University (8-4). This game will be the final tuneup for the Pack before their ACC opener in Miami on New Years Eve.
