NC State (15-3, 4-1) faces rival Wake Forest (9-8, 2-3) tonight in Winston-Salem. Here are some pregame notes on the Wolfpack.
BEST OF MAXIM
This storming of the court is a bit baffling to me. On Tuesday night, Wake Forest upset #18 ranked North Carolina State 86-84, and madness ensued in the form of a court storming. I am not one to judge, and I know folks just want to have fun, but this seemed a bit too much especially with Wake Forest coming into the game at 10-7. The hoisting up of players on the fans shoulders...
The Demon Deacons haven't had much to celebrate in the three seasons of Jeff Bzdelik. But now, in their past four home games, they've beaten Xavier, Virginia, Boston College, and NC State. After this fourth win the fans went ahead and stormed the court. NC State had to watch a second straight fan base storm the floor after seeing their own fans do it 10 days ago after beating Duke.

Wake Forest hosted a handful of undecided recruits over the weekend. One of the possible feature Deacons on campus was Cydney Calvin, a 6-foot-1, 175-pound defensive back from Frisco (Texas) Centennial High School. Calvin caught up with DeaconSports on his visit to Winston-Salem and where Wake Forest stands afterward.

Here are some final thoughts and observations following the 86-84 loss to Wake Forest.
Wake Forest recruit Brad Watson was hoping more players from the Lone Star State would be a part of this year's class. He may just get his wish. The Demon Deacon staff offered Duke Ejiofor on Thursday night. The 6-foo-4, 218-pound defensive end from Alief Taylor High School in Houston spoke to DeaconSports.com on his new offer.
WINSTON-SALEM, NC -- Wake Forest pulled off a shocking upset, barely holding onto a 10-point lead with four minutes left to stun No. 18 NC State 86-84 on Tuesday night.
Jalen Latter committed to Wake Forest on Sunday. See the Charlotte (N.C.) Vance cornerback in action in this presentation by FOX Sports Next.
We played a horrible game allowing Wake Forest to shoot almost 50% against us tonight. They average only 43% FG shooting and less than 70 points per game, but we let them score 86 against a top 20 team.
As the song lyrics go "The stars at night are big and bright, deep in the heart of Texas". Wake Forest found a big, bright star for their secondary in Brad Watson from Westwood High School in Round Rock, Texas. He talked with DeaconSports.com on his plans for the spring and preparing to join the Demon Deacons this summer.
Jalen Latter became the first Wake Forest commitment of the new year. The 6-foot, 185-pound athlete from Zebulon B. Vance High School in Charlotte, N.C. had been to the Winston-Salem campus for a summer camp and back for the Clemson game in October, but gave his verbal pledge to Jim Grobe on Sunday, the last day of his official visit.
