Oklahoma State at NC State Date 11/18/2012 6:30:00 PMLocation Puerto Rico Tip-OffLive StatsLinkTV ESPN2 Team Stats Embed This Chart On Your WebsitePence's Quick  Thoughts NC State takes on Oklahoma State in the Puerto Rico Tipoff final on Sunday.  Pomeroy has Oklahoma State as #42 overall so this should be a good test for the Pack.  OK State will defend, opponents are shooting just 34% on 2 pt shots and 31% on 3 pt shots.  The biggest red flag in looking at the Cowboys Pomeroy profile is their  FT Rate of 54% which is good enough for 28th in the nation.  That means the Cowboys get to the FT line a lot, and with NC State's proclivity to interior foul trouble its cause for concern. ******* North Carolina State freshman T.J. Warren has been as good as advertised, and he hasn't even cracked the starting lineup. He'll look to help the sixth-ranked Wolfpack capture the championship of the Puerto Rico Tipoff as they face Oklahoma State on Sunday night. The 6-foot-8 Warren, a McDonald's All-American along with fellow freshmen teammates Rodney Purvis and Tyler Lewis, is averaging a team-best 17.0 points and hitting 70.0 percent of his field goal attempts as N.C. State (3-0) has won by an average of 24.3 points. He made 8 of 11 from the field in Friday's 94-76 win over Massachusetts, following up a 22-point effort in an opening-round victory Thursday over Penn State in which he went 3 of 4 from 3-point range and 9 of 12 overall. More from CBSSports.com 1. Bringing home some hardware The sixth-ranked Wolfpack is looking for its first in-season tournament title since beating Auburn in the 2009 Glenn Wilkes Classic championship game in Daytona Beach, Fla. Two years earlier, against better competition, N.C. State beat 20th-ranked Villanova 69-68 in the Old Spice Classic final. Gavin Grant was fouled on a 3-point attempt with 0.4 seconds left, and he hit two free throws to give coach Sidney Lowe one of his signature victories. In some ways, it became a bit of a punchline given Lowe's struggles at his alma mater.
