PITTSBURGH (AP) — North Carolina State opted for modified shootaround late Friday night after arriving in Pittsburgh. No plays. Just shots. Lots and lots of shots, not the worst idea in the world less than a week removed from a record-setting loss to Virginia Tech in which the Wolfpack managed just nine baskets in 40 minutes.
RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — North Carolina State kept hanging around, even down six with 26.5 seconds to go.
"I told them, 'Believe,'" Wolfpack coach Kevin Keatts said.
Turns out Keatts knew what he was talking about, thanks to a few missed free throws from Clemson and one huge shot from sophomore Braxton Beverly.
Beverly shook off a bumpy shooting game by knocking down a 3-pointer to beat the buzzer, capping the 21st-ranked Wolfpack's rally in the final seconds to stun the Tigers 69-67 on Saturday.
RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — North Carolina State has a national ranking, confidence in a productive 10-man rotation and its best start in more than a decade.
That's about all coach Kevin Keatts could've wanted from a now-completed nonconference schedule, which wrapped Friday night with the No. 20 Wolfpack beating Loyola (Maryland) 97-64.
"If you had told me we would be 12-1, I probably would've taken it," Keatts said. "Obviously we had our chances to be 13-0."
ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — Six minutes. Three hundred and sixty seconds.
It is not an especially long period of time. But to hear Penn State men's basketball coach Pat Chambers, that was the difference between his squad and North Carolina State.

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — North Carolina State was never in danger of losing the game, but the Wolfpack did lose something else after halftime: Their focus.
Still, a huge first-half surge was more than enough to carry N.C. State to an 85-57 rout of Saint Peter's on Tuesday night.
The Wolfpack were outscored in the second half for a second straight game, with the Peacocks scoring 30 points to their 26.

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Devon Daniels, C.J. Bryce and Blake Harris spent the better part of last season leading North Carolina State's practice team and working on their games — along with their ability to stay patient — while sitting out as transfers.

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — North Carolina State delivered another emphatic statement that it belongs in the NCAA Tournament.

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — The attorney for North Carolina State's Braxton Beverly says he believes the NCAA will clear him to play this season after an eligibility dispute over summer courses the freshman took at Ohio State.

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — The NCAA has denied North Carolina State's appeal for immediate eligibility for freshman guard Braxton Beverly.
The school announced the NCAA's decision Monday, more than two weeks after the NCAA had turned down the school's initial request. The issue centered around the fact that Beverly initially enrolled at Ohio State and took two summer courses before an unexpectedly late coaching change led him to obtain his release and join the Wolfpack by the fall semester.
RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — North Carolina State says the NCAA has ruled freshman guard Braxton Beverly ineligible to play this season.
Coach Kevin Keatts said Friday that the school will appeal the decision "and hopefully it yields a different result."
Beverly originally signed with Ohio State and attended classes there, but received a release after Thad Matta's ouster as head coach. He signed with N.C. State in August.
