The North Carolina State Wolfpack are off to a great start to the 2018-19 college basketball season. On Saturday, following a good win against a solid Pittsburgh Panthers team, NC State improved to 14-2.
To help earn the victory, DJ Funderburk scored 12 of his career-high 18 points in the last 20 minutes of the game.
While defeating Pitt might not seem like a big deal, it is important to remember how decent the Panthers have been this season. It isn’t as if this is the same squad that played under Kevin Stallings.
“It’s just a testimony to the chip on our shoulder that we play with, how hard we play, and just trying to come together as a brotherhood and trying to figure out what we’re doing wrong and just come down and get the win at the end of the game,” Funderburk said via The AP.
Up next for the North Carolina State Wolfpack is yet another ACC test, as they will face the Wake Forest Demon Deacons.
The Kevin Keatts led program is truly starting to find itself.
