NC State has to be angry after giving up 86 points to Wake Forest on the road. They normally allow just 68ppg, while North Carolina allows 69.5ppg. The Wolfpack have already defeated Duke, but lost at Maryland and at Wake Forest after downing Duke. The Wolfpack will be sky high to face another rival, who is playing well. The Wolfpack have the edge at point guard where 6-5 Lorenzo Brown averages 6.9 assists per game. Up front, Richard Howell is a beast on the boards with 10.9 rebounds per game, while C.J. Leslie leads the team with 15.3ppg. The Wolfpack have one of the best shooting teams in the nation, averaging 51% from the field and also shoot 39% from the three-point line. Scott Wood is a dead-eye shooter who should get plenty of looks against UNC's three-point shooting defense (34% 3pt allowed). Expect the Wolfpack to cover with the homecourt advantage against a young North Carolina team facing it's tough road test yet.
