But the biggest difference was stopping Miami on the last four possessions of overtime. “Defense wins games when the shots aren’t falling,” Jim Valvano.

Some comments really stood out to me: NC State forced 17 Miami turnovers, but had just four of its own.

The Pack finished the game with a 23-7 advantage in points off turnovers, a 16-3 advantage in second chance points and a 52-36 in points in the paint.

Miami shot 56.9 percent from the field compared to just 44 percent for NC State, but the Pack attempted 24 more shots (75 to 51) than the Canes.

Joiner’s toughness and poise when the game gets to critical moments is such a big part of our ability to win these close ones. What a huge difference having that experience. ZERO turnovers! AGAIN!. Only 4 turnovers for the entire team! Add the constant offensive pressure applied by Smith and you got yourself a basketball team.

Thought we were in trouble when Dusan went down.
Really thought the season was going south when we lost our second starter.
Then Gantt showed up and played well, giving us a chance.
And now Ross outplayed Gantt!
BEST WIN OF THE SEASON!!

Another ‘toughness’ win for the Pack! This time with Ross gettin into it! Seems like KK has a nice rotation going.

This was a key win against one of the top 2 or 3 teams in the conference.

No doubt. That’s a type of win that builds grit. Ross was huge. I thought we were doomed to lose when we seemed unable to hit a shot for that stretch in the second half. There was one point where we failed to get the rebound 4 times before Miami decided to then hit their shot. I did not think that game would go our way but in true Cardiac Pack spirit, they somehow found a way to win. To Miami’s credit, they were clutch and didn’t seem to miss a shot (and crucial ones at that) especially toward the… Read more »

I keep feeling every game so far that we’ve won is vital and I’m going to say, a road win at Georgia Tech would be real nice for us. I believe this stretch has been huge, but we need to keep churning these Ws out. Maybe I’m just not satisfied. And the way our players have been playing, I get a sense they aren’t satisfied either. I get a sense something is clicking right now. Something nice.

Ernest Ross is No Longer on NC State’s Roster

Published

on

According to a source, Senior Forward Ernest Ross is no longer on NC State’s roster.

On April 17th, Ross entered the Transfer Portal. On May 10th, Ross verbally committed to UTSA. Then on May 15th, Ross announced that he would in fact be returning to NC State for his final year of eligibility.

Ross played in 14 games this past season, averaging 3.4 minutes per contest. After playing in 34 games last season, averaging 11.4 minutes per contest, Ross saw his participation dip to a career low this season, but that didn’t for a second break his infectious personality.

Ross was a consensus 4-star player in NC State’s 2021 recruiting class, with 247Sports ranking him as the #60 overall player nationally. ESPN ranked him as the #5 overall player in the state of Florida.

According to a source, Ross is leaving the program for personal reasons, that are non-basketball related.

Ross has 1 year of eligibility remaining.

MJ Rice is No Longer on NC State’s Roster

Published

According to a source, Sophomore Guard MJ Rice is no longer on NC State’s roster.

Rice transferred to NC State last offseason from Kansas, and only played in 9 games for the Wolfpack this past season, averaging 4.1 points in 8.8 minutes per game.

On January 24th, it NC State announced that Rice would be sitting out the remainder of the season, and that they would be submitting a waiver for the season to count as a Redshirt year.

Prior to the beginning of the  season, Rice stepped away from the program for personal reasons, and missed the first 7 games, before joining the Wolfpack against Maryland Eastern-Shore.

The Kansas transfer played in 23 games for the Jayhawks as a Freshman, averaging 2.2 points in 7.6 minutes per game. ON3 ranked Rice as the #24 overall player nationally in the 2022 recruiting class. They also ranked him as the #2 overall player in the Transfer Portal.

It was always ‘iffy’ whether or not Rice would be on next years roster, but he didn’t enter the Transfer Portal, and remained with the team on their magical run, and even after.

According to a source, Rice is leaving the program for personal reasons, that are non-basketball related.

Rice has 3 years of eligibility remaining.
