College basketball: North Carolina St. stuns No. 2 Duke

N.C. State now has two wins over No.2-ranked teams this season.

NC State bested No. 2 Duke on Saturday 96-85 to secure its second victory against a second-ranked team this season.

It came roughly six weeks after his team beat then-No.

Fortunately for the Blue Devils, perimeter shooting has been a weakness for the Wolfpack (10-5, 0-2) all season.

"I don't know what my team learned, I know what I've learned", Keatts said. "We have to come back and play strong and get some revenge on them".

Much like that Arizona win, the Wolfpack (11-5, 1-2 ACC) played with confident control.

The Wolfpack made six of its first nine shots of the half, with Yurtseven converting two for dunks, to take a 55-47 lead with 16:11 to play.

But, unlike losses to Clemson and Notre Dame, the Wolfpack mounted a counterattack. "People are going to come out, especially with us being Duke, they're going to come out with a chip on their shoulder", freshman Wendell Carter Jr. said at a press conference Thursday.

The bad news is that the Blue Devils can't shoot from the outside, can't get a stop when they need one and have no bench, at least no bench Krzyzewski is willing to rely upon. "And certainly it worked out".

Having trailed the entire second half, Duke attempted a comeback when Bagley scored inside and Gary Trent turned a turnover into a layup to cut N.C. State's lead to 79-76 with 3:59 to play.

WHO WE LIKE: N.C. State.

In footage taken of the incident, Harington leans over the pool table in the crowded bar and yells incoherently. An eyewitness told TMZ that the management requested him to leave but he kept on coming back to the pool.

"I thought our kids were connected. When you have two guys like that, they make up for misses".

Duke: The Blue Devils have encountered plenty of trouble after making the 25-mile drive from campus in Raleigh in recent years.

"So they probably have some confidence", Duval said of the Wolfpack.

The Wolfpack fans flooded the floor with red, again, and in this particular case at the end of a game that showed what N.C. State can be at its best and what Duke can be when it isn't. His team sure found a way to top it.

While the Wolfpack played from in front throughout the second half, it wasn't until Dorn knocked down those huge 3s that the Wolfpack finally had firm control.

He first made a three-pointer from the corner with 2:02 left and N.C. State protecting a four-point lead.

Beverly drew a foul after stealing the ball and hit two free throws with 1:48 left giving the Wolfpack an 87-78 lead.

"The first one definitely felt good leaving my hand", Dorn said.

Florida State: Continues its challenging start to conference play Wednesday night by playing host to the 13th-ranked Tar Heels. "But I couldn't see it go in because I fell".

For N.C. State graduate transfer Allerik Freeman, this will be the first taste of the in-state ACC rivalries. To listen to Duke freshman Trevon Duval, the problem was poor communication. "It's a lot of trash talk as we play, a lot of, 'We're going to beat y'all just because y'all Duke.' That's just how it is". "We just have to do it more consistently".

Duke announced Saturday afternoon that sophomore forward Marques Bolden wouldn't play due to a knee injury. In slightly more than a month, the Blue Devils will visit three in-state ACC venues.
