A few numbers from the N.C State win at Duke. Dennis Smith with a spectacular performance 32 points in 33 minutes. (shoots 4-6 from 3) with 6 dimes. State had 30 FTA's on the road. (Only made 20) Wolfpack closed the gap on the glass & points in the paint which was key. Can N.C State get on a roll? Duke had a poor second half performance vs State but a great second half vs Miami. Consistency still lacking with Duke.
