NC State came out anxious, impatient and overconfident against a gritty and physical Maryland team. That’s anxiety turned to dispair as the Wolfpack rushed their way through the first half, only scoring 16 points in the period.
While they picked it up in the second half and finally took the lead late in the 2nd half, they continued to make poor decisions down the stretch, leading to a buzzer beating lay in by Alex Len that gave the Terps the 1 point victory, 51-50.
NC State shot 31% on the night.
