Can't win for losing

After last night's loss at Wake Forest, the N&O's Ned Barnett says

"State can recover. The Pack needs to win five of its next six to retain hopes of making the NCAA or to win the ACC Tournament for an automatic bid. The Pack, despite the loss, showed signs of life Thursday. As they sunk all the way to home loss to Virginia in their last outing,, the question for Pack players going into the Wake game was: Will they quit?"

Last night's loss was probably the ultimate symbol of State's season so far. Julius Hodge, much maligned in the ACC blogosphere this past week, shows his critics a thing or two by having an excellent game, hitting his first ten shots. After he finally entered the game, that is. Would the outcome have been different had Hodge started?
