UNC 81 N.C. State 71

The Pack gives it the old college try, but just isn't good enough.

The N&R's Ed Hardin questions Herb Sendek's decision to bench Andrew Brackman after he sparked a rally with ten minutes left:

"State's only surge of the second half was provided by freshman Andrew Brackman, who came into the game and scored eight straight points for the Wolfpack. Sendek then took him out.....Sendek's substitution pattern has been questioned at times this season, in part because he's had to make so many injury decisions and because so many of his players have disappeared this year. A few more went missing Tuesday night."

Engin Astur on the Tar Heels:

"They're not the No. 2-ranked team in the country by chance. They're a balanced team. Everybody can step every night. They kept their composure and and made plays."
