NCAA Basketball: Boston College at North Carolina State Rob Kinnan-USA TODAY Sports

The Boston College Eagles look to get back on the right track Wednesday afternoon against the NC State Wolfpack.

How Did NC State Do Last Time Out?

NC State Key Stats:

82.7 ppg (32nd in country)

76.0 paa (T-264th)

39.0 rpg (T-70th)

Things to Look Out For With NC State:

  1. The Rebound Game: Before NC State got blown out by North Carolina, I thought this could potentially be the makings of a trap game. Easily overlooked opponent, late start time, probably an empty building, the Eagles could have potentially caught the Wolfpack sleeping. But that was before North Carolina. NC State is going to be out to right the ship. BC needs to come out strong to meet this push straight on.
  2. YOUTHS!: NC State will not be the youngest team BC has played (that’s all Harvard), but BC will be playing a team with a ton of youth. Three of NC State’s probable starters are underclassmen. Two of those three are freshmen.

Random, Possibly Incorrect Fact from NC State’s Wikipedia Page

NC State’s basketball arena hosts a minor league hockey team, the Carolina Hurricanes.
