Every shot attempt by NC State

Ask me no questions, and I'll tell you no lies

Well that was a fun watch. They should have included free throws though

Love the buzzer effect. Same score as a middle school game!

"Hey Bud, you wont have to hold the opponent to 17 points anymore."

Love that the kid that sits down at the start of 5's dance but realizes 5 is still dancing so he continues while still seated. Mom seems to love it haha

That was Buzz's wife and son! :)

I'm sure I'm not the first person to ever think this, but whoever provides the shirts for their band spent way to much time on Where's Waldo

"That was the problem in the first half, the centers weren't taking enough shots from deep." -TV after Blackshear's trey

-What we do is, if we need that extra push, you know what we do? -Put it up to fully dipped? -Fully dipped. Exactly. It's dork magic.

Now that was a great comment. Love it when they actually get a good joke in.

Blackshear's triple came shortly after NC State's center made his first 3-pointer of the season. Of the few shots they made, hard to believe that was one of them...

Elite bench energy

Fantastic.

NC State still had more points than the Super Bowl. So they got that going for them, which is nice.

2 top 25 teams? Neither looked much like it. It's a good thing we got in a slight groove to pull this one out. We definitely need 5 back! Or learn to be aggressive without him.

Justin was having so much fun during that game, I just had to video one of his multiple dance sessions. His positive energy really kept the team going I think. Interesting to see how this new temporary role will play out for the rest of the conference play.

More bricks than fans at a LOLUVA game.

Ironic, because as wikipedia describes:

Architecturally, Main Campus is known for its distinctive red brick buildings. Brick statues dot the landscape and the University Plaza, colloquially named "The Brickyard", in North Campus is nicknamed for its paving material, most sidewalks are also made from brick. The Brickyard and sidewalks also contain white brick mosaics of the athletics logo and other patterns.

Sometimes we live no particular way but our own

With that many missed shots I am surprised we didn't break a school record for rebounds in a game

Whatever. It was one bad year.

Come to Blacksburg and see what the Hokie Pokie is really all about

i can't remember exactly where we were, but this single game moved us on Ken Pom AdjD efficiency from somewhere in the mid 50s to number 16

NC State played like they had their talent stolen by these guys...

I want to send this link to my NCSU-alum manager, but that could be detrimental to my career, so I won't.

I hung this up in my cubicle today on 11"x17" paper. My office is across the street from PNC arena and at least 50% of my coworkers are NC State alums (including all of my superiors). Hopefully I still have a job tomorrow.

"For those who have passed, for those to come, reach for excellence."

Part of me wants to do the same, as I work with some State grads (as well as a mixture of all NC schools), but my office is at the end of the hallway so I don't see much traffic down here.

That's abysmal. I'm also curious: 17% is the worst in program history, but 9-54, and 2-28 aren't?

Well, 9/54 = 1/6 ≈ 17%, so yes, I'd say that's their worst ever, and if measuring by that method it would be redundant to highlight it twice. If you want to use a different metric to define "worst", such as fewest shots made or most shots missed, I'd expect there have been other games that meet both criteria (for sure the "fewest shots made", since they once beat Duke 12-10 by holding the ball for minutes on end before the invention of the shot clock).

As for the 2/28 number, I'm sure at least once since the 3 point shot was invented they weren't 0-fer from behind the arc, meaning 0% even if they only attempted, say, 5 treys.
