VIDEO: Torin Dorn Talks After NC State’s 97-64 Victory Over Loyola Maryland

Published

on

Senior Torin Dorn led NC State in scoring (17) and rebounding (8) in tonight’s 97-64 victory over Loyola Maryland to close out the non-conference slate. The video of what he had to say to the media afterwards is ABOVE, and a bulleted breakdown is BELOW.

  • We need to cut down our turnovers heading into ACC play. We’ve been turning the ball over too much, and if we cut that down, I think we’ll be fine.
  • It’s bitter sweet to have played my last non-conference game. It’s a chapter that’s coming to a close. These games are fun too. I think every game is fun.
  • My final two schools were NC State and Miami (after transferring from UNC-Charlotte). I chose the school I would go to if basketball wasn’t an option. I think it worked out great for me.
  • ACC play is just super intense. Every game, every night, is a huge challenge. Every game is that Auburn atmosphere. You’ve got to be ready to play. If you come out slow, you might find yourself down twenty to nothing. We saw that against Notre Dame last year.
  • It’s definitely important to get off to a good start in ACC play.

Clemson 81 NC State 70: OUR TAKE

Published

on

NC State Head Coach Kevin Keatts said that his team didn’t “play great” against Clemson this afternoon, in their 81-70 loss to the Tigers.

That was an understatement.

Sometimes I wish a coach would come out and say the truth

The Wolfpack played terrible down in South Carolina.

Clemson outshot NC State in every category.

FG/3PT/FT

Clemson – 46.9/32.1/83.9
NC State – 44.1/23.8/68.4

The Tigers out rebounded the Wolfpack by 4. They had more second chance points (+2) and more points off turnovers (+6).

Clemson shot 12 more free throws.

They shared the ball better, netting 5 more assists.

The stats weren’t in their favor to walk away with the victory, but maybe what was most disappointing was the overall lack of effort.

Senior Markell Johnson still hasn’t figured out how to play consistent basketball, in production or effort, and we are half way through year 4.

The coaches ability to adjust has to be called into question after today’s performance. Clemson abused the Wolfpack with backdoor cuts and slipping screens for 40 straight minutes. Also, I’m all for aggressive defense, but failing to put the hand in the face of wide open three-point shooters is inexcusable.

NC State was without Redshirt Senior Guard C.J. Bryce, who leads the team in scoring and rebounding. Obviously, his presence was missed, and the game could have been different with him on the court.

This loss doesn’t ruin a season, and obviously the team can rebound from it, but the deja vu of losses like these become exhausting.
