NC State 70 Florida State 54

The Wolfpack let the Seminoles creep closer than they should have and, as Billy Packer noted, expended considerable energy putting the game away. They also got very sloppy with their passing toward the end. Had Florida State taken proper advantage, they could have easily gotten back in the game during the last five minutes.

The Pack sizzled in the first half, going on an 11-0 run to start the game, while Florida State was stone cold.

State also played a soild trap defense. One problem, though: Aside from the occasional back-door cut , the Pack had nothing inside. There were still too many 3-point attempts with nobody under the basket. Fortunately, they hit most of them. State might not be so hot tomorrow night against Wake Forest.
