The tension was high, but the reward was much greater. Sam Highfill (A FRESHMAN) just pitched the game of his life in a 1-0 win over Vanderbilt. The win was historic for a couple reasons;
- Vanderbilt hadn’t been shutout since March 17, 2019 (Texas A&M).
- NC State became the first school in the seeding era (since 1999) to beat a #1 nationally ranked team and defending national champion in the same NCAA tournament.
