    e FloorSomething must be done to keep the floor at the PNC Ice House dry. Once again, a player slipped at the end of the game on a wet spot on the floor...could have been seriously injured. It happened in a previous game, too. This will continue to happen as long as they continue to allow them to place a wooden basketball floor over a frozen Hockey Rink. In addition, in both games, the outcome of the game could have been different if the player had not slipped on the floor. NCSU needs to do something about this problem...it is inexcusable in a supposed modern technology situation

    Same thing used to happen at the Boston Garden, wooden b-ball floor over the ice where the Bruins played.

    Personally, I think that NCSU should look to build an arean that it owns and controls. Probably won't happen because too much $$$ would be involved. But as long as we do not control the scheduling at PNC, this will continue.

    Good hard fought W. Booker was a monster scoring, but Howell outrebounded him. Still can't figure out why we did not put some token ball pressure in the backcourt when Clemson threw it in and did not pick up the ball so start the clock until the ball was almost over half court. Putting on the ball pressure would have forced them to pick up the ball and I don't think they would have even gotten that last 3 off.

    Warren had a monster game. I agree about sitting CJ, and Howell is a beast who never gives up, even when he isn't scoring, he's playing great D.

    +1 Good one! Your guys won, though, and a W is a W.

    The ACC has a lot more parity than I originally thought. Clemson managed to make a game out of it, but State prevailed. Congrats to Pack Nation.

    Unless a certain coach starts requiring some passionate defense, you are right. BTW, I would sit Calvin and start Warren, until that changes. Great game, Howell. You ARE the MVP right now. Saved us again with your hustle.

    State had all kinds of trouble with Booker inside ..... even an alley oop lob on in inbound for a dunk to him, that shouldn't happen. It's a win though .... I don't care for the all black uniforms that State has used on occasion. Looks like Gottfried is starting to lean on the 2-3 zone a little. He's using it more and more.

    Wonder how many pack fans enjoy these ugly wins with out realizing, States got some serious issues.

    well i didnt think my heels could go into west raleigh next weekend and walk out with a W but now im firmly convinced that they can state is overrated badly and should drop out of the top 20 and hopefully we can help them exit the top the top 25 next saturday! go heels!

    I agree. They need to protect the home court, but I do not see the desire tonight.

    Tom O'Brien? I have no idea. I admit, I have no knowledge of assistant coaches. You are right about Howell. He comes to play every night, but it seems Calvin only shows up once in a while.

    Who do you think would be a good add as an asst coach that can teach defense? You're right about the Maryland game, and then how many times in this game have I seen Clemson get easy shots because no one blocks out. Howell, not Leslie should be the all-Acc candidate. Only one hustling in most games.

  • FatherofFour Jan 20, 7:13 p.m.

    It seems someones sets a career high on us every game. Booker is going off. If the pack doesn't tighten up their defense, they are going to be in the same position they were on Wednesday night against Maryland.

  • Tar Heels Victory-Show No Mercer Jan 20, 7:04 p.m.

    Clemson has a worse offense than Maryland!

  • Tar Heels Victory-Show No Mercer Jan 20, 7:01 p.m.

  • FatherofFour Jan 20, 6:56 p.m.

    I think someone should explain to the refs the definition of a moving screen. Clemson is setting one every time down the court, and it has yet to be called.

  • PackFan1983 Jan 20, 6:39 p.m.

    State always can figure out a way to let the opponent back in the game. We get a lead, then get sloppy. Teach some discipline for a change, Gott!

  • Sauras69 Jan 20, 6:36 p.m.

    State came out strong but Booker is having his way too often. Brown has greatly improved since last season. Big money one day for him. Jay Williams has turned into one of the best announcers in the game. He does his homework.

  • iron fist Jan 20, 6:34 p.m.

    What's witht the uniforms? I turned on the game and thought I had the wrong game on. The uniforms are worse the Lowes red jacket. State has this game well in hand early looks like this will be a blow out.

  • Six String Jan 20, 6:05 p.m.

    We're planning on starting the game with an oblong ball. It doesn't bounce real well but you can throw it all the way down the court.
