-- From the N&O:

UNCP's point-zone defense was active and effective, turning State into a jump-shooting team much of the opening half.

I didn't catch the game, but, yeah, apparently. If you force this Wolfpack team to take more than half of its shots from behind the arc, you've done something right. State shot 18-21 (85.7%) on its twos.

-- Much better defensive rebounding effort this time around, and a better overall defensive performance as well.

-- Trevor Ferguson: he's aliiiiiive. Typically he doesn't so much use possessions as he does stand there and watch the other four guys use possessions. But not last night! Seven field goal attempts. And a team-leading eight rebounds?!
