NC State Brutalizes Boston College 73-47 to Close out the Regular Season

Published

on

Somebody really wants to go dancing.

The Wolfpack defeated Boston College 73-47 on the road.

NC State played with their hair on fire for 40 minutes, playing their most complete game of the ACC slate.

It wasn’t their statistically most impressive outing, at least on the offensive end. The Wolfpack only shot 39.7% from the field.

It was their defensive prowess that was staggering, holding the Golden Eagles to 26.7% shooting.

Ky Bowman was only 4 of 15.

The Wolfpack might not have shot all that well, but they were balanced and unselfish, connecting on 29 field goals off of 16 assists.

Redshirt Junior CJ Bryce led the way with 14 points (6-11 FG), but Junior Markell Johnson was the difference in the game. While he couldn’t find his shot (3-12 FG), he led the team with 6 assists, and also snagged 6 boards. Johnson was a floor general, and NC State is always most successful when he’s pushing the tempo.

Senior Torin Dorn had 12 points and 8 rebounds in his final collegiate regular season game.

Redshirt Sophomore Devon Daniels was the only other Wolfpack player in double-figures, chipping in 10 points, along with 7 boards.

Redshirt Sophomore DJ Funderburk had a team-high 9 rebounds.

NC State out-rebounded Boston College 56-36, and 19-11 on the offensive glass.

The Wolfpack has struggled with slow starts all year, but they put their foot on the gas at the beginning, and proved they could keep the pedal on the floor board for 40 minutes.

The Wolfpack will be the #8 seed in next weeks ACC Tournament, playing #9 seed Clemson at Noon on Wednesday.

  • Returning 6 of top 7 scorers from last year
  • Redshirt Junior D.J. Funderburk needs to rebound more consistently, and stay out of foul trouble.
  • The version of Senior Markell Johnson that finished the season will be needed for NC State to get back to the NCAA Tournament.
    • Needs to be a consistent leader and scorer.
  • Junior Braxton Beverly needs to figure out a way to run more hot than cold.
  • Consistency from Redshirt Junior Devon Daniels would go a long way.
  • Team should be back in the NCAA Tournament.
  • With a reloading year for Duke, UVA and UNC, Keatts will get few opportunities like this one.
