Freshman Jericole Hellems tied his career high with 16 points tonight in NC State’s 97-64 victory over Loyola Maryland to close out the non-conference slate. He also had 4 rebounds, 4 assists, 2 blocks and 2 steals. The video of what he had to say to the media afterwards is ABOVE, and a bulleted breakdown is BELOW.
- Coach always tells me to work on my defense and the offense will come. Coming out with intensity as a single group, trying to pick things up.
- Coach reminds me everyday that defense is the most important thing coming off the bench, and providing energy. Anything I can do to help the team to win is what I come off the bench to do.
- The way I shot the ball gives me more confidence to shoot the ball. Coach tells me to have confidence every time I shoot the ball. It helps when the ball is going in.
- I think ACC play is going to be a great environment. The environment playing Auburn in the PNC was crazy, so I know ACC play is going to be great. Looking forward to proving a lot of people wrong and having a lot of fun.
