I’ll keep this short.
It’s finally over. Like March itself, the Mark Gottfried era goes out like a lamb as the Wolfpack fall to the Clemson Tigers, 75-61. The Tigers handled the Pack in pretty much every statistical category – points in the paint, fast break points, rebounding, you name it. As much as I appreciate everything Coach Gott gave to the NC State community over the last 6 years, these stats were indicative of the last two years.
You can make all the “tough neighborhood” excuses you want, but listless efforts have become the norm in Raleigh. While there’s really not much more to say about today’s game, we’ll have a season recap and take a look ahead and see what’s in store for the Wolfpack.
Check back in tomorrow for our Day 1 ACC Tourney Recap
