Winning is not free (throw)

It does not have to be pretty. But the team that made the “Survive and Advance” moniker famous failed to do that. NC State had an eight-point lead with about two minutes left and proceeded to miss free throw after free throw, leaving the door open for Saint Louis. The Billikens took advantage. Then in the overtime period, the Wolfpack’s best player drew an and-1 after a steal...

T.J. Warren, Ralston Turner power N.C. State Wolfpack

After N.C. State’s ACC tournament win over Miami, Ralston Turner went with T.J. Warren to the post-game press conference. The players were asked a question, the soft-spoken Warren looked to Turner for help. That’s how it has been on the floor, too. While Warren has picked up N.C.

NC State defeats Xavier 74-59 in the First Four

ACC: 1, A10: 0…suck on that Shaka Smart. Kidding of course. This has nothing to do with ACC pride or a non-controversial pissing contest between the VCU head coach and Duke’s Coach K. This is about winning a championship. This is about North Carolina State being one game closer to achieving that. The Wolfpack played their best game of the year (good time for it). In fact, the...

The Welcome Wagon arrived early for Xavier's men's basketball team. As the 12th-seeded Musketeers participated in their open practice at UD Arena Monday night, a trio of red-clad Flyers fans hunkered down for some pre-NCAA tournament needling of their program's archrival. But Xavier's players and coaches focused on the task at hand, and that was preparing for 12th...
