NC State concluded their non-conference portion of the scheduled by blowing out Rider 99-71. The Wolfpack improved to 11-2 on the season as they enter ACC play. Dennis Smith led they way once again with 19 points and 16 assists. Omer Yurtseven added 16 points and Ted Kapita grabbed 11 boards. This most likely concludes the ‘human victory cigar’ portion of the season.

Raleigh City Sports Presents The Ted Kapita Player of the Game: Dennis Smith Jr
Thus continues the Dennis Smith recap. After being denied a poster dunk on the previous possession he stated: ‘Next one, I’m gonna put it on his head.’ He did (reference video above).
What’s next? NC State begins ACC play by traveling down to Miami (10-2) on New Years Eve. Raleigh City is looking forward to see how this years squad stacks up against ACC opponents.
