Drives that rolled around the cylinder and dropped away.

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.

SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — No. 17 North Carolina State left coach Kevin Keatts with a hoarse voice Saturday.

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — North Carolina State coach Kevin Keatts isn't sure if the No. 17 Wolfpack will have starting point guard Markell Johnson for Tuesday's game at Wake Forest.

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Kevin Keatts spent his first year at North Carolina State installing an aggressive pressure-based scheme. Now he's got the numbers to run it how he likes: with a deep rotation that has the 15th-ranked Wolfpack thriving at the start of Atlantic Coast Conference play.
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."
RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — North Carolina State coach Kevin Keatts won't hesitate to go to his bench, especially if he keeps getting production like this.
Graduate transfer Eric Lockett had season highs of 15 points and eight rebounds to lead a high-scoring group of reserves in the Wolfpack's 98-71 win against USC Upstate on Saturday, avoiding any stumble following a rousing upset of No. 7 Auburn a few days earlier.
RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — North Carolina State has another big win against a ranked opponent under Kevin Keatts.

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — North Carolina State has given basketball coach Kevin Keatts a new contract through the 2023-24 season.
The school's board of governors on Friday approved the six-year deal that will pay him $2.7 million per year — an increase of $400,000 from his previous salary.
Keatts originally signed a six-year contract after his hiring in March 2017, and when he led the Wolfpack to the NCAA Tournament last season, it triggered a one-year rollover clause.
MIAMI (AP) — Markell Johnson kept getting to the rim down the stretch, and the North Carolina State Wolfpack showed they can finish.

North Carolina State (7-1) bounced back from its first loss of the season Tuesday at Wisconsin.
RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — North Carolina State piled up the points again, but its defense has been even more impressive.
Torin Dorn had 22 points and 10 rebounds to help the Wolfpack beat Maryland Eastern Shore 95-49 on Saturday.
N.C. State held the Hawks to 31.5-percent shooting from the field, its best mark in 35 games under coach Kevin Keatts. The previous low of 32.8 percent came in the Wolfpack's season-opening 105-55 win over Mount St. Mary's.
RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — There's a lot of new pieces for North Carolina State coach Kevin Keatts to sort through in his overhauled lineup.
There's plenty of versatility, the athleticism to get loose in tempo-quickening transition and even enough outside shooting despite starting the year with the team's best 3-point threat sidelined by injury.
RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Kevin Keatts had a promising start at North Carolina State, from beating nationally ranked powers to getting the Wolfpack back into the NCAA Tournament.
North Carolina State
Last season: 21-12, lost in first round of NCAA Tournament.
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.
The Wolfpack's success this season could depend on how successful they were in turning that time into sharpened skillsets, particularly with so many new faces on the roster for coach Kevin Keatts' second season.
RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — North Carolina State says the NCAA is allowing Missouri transfer Blake Harris to play for the Wolfpack this season.
Coach Kevin Keatts said Tuesday that the NCAA approved Harris' request to be immediately eligible. The point guard from Chapel Hill started nine of the 14 games he played last season for the Tigers before announcing in January that he would transfer.
