The NC State Wolfpack will be going for their second consecutive win when they take on the Florida International Panthers on Wednesday night.
Panthers Going For Second Consecutive WinThe Panthers bounced back from their season-opening loss to Mississippi State with a win over the Ave Maria Gyrenes in their last game. They will be trying to keep the momentum going and pick up their second win of the season when they face the Wolfpack on Wednesday.
Florida International is averaging 85 points per game, but their high average is due to the fact that they played the way they were supposed to do against an NAIA team. In their first game, they were held to 69 points by the Bulldogs, so expect to see a similar performance from them against NC State.
Blake Furcron was nearly perfect from the field in their last game, making seven of his eight attempts to lead the Panthers with 16 points. Devon Andrews finished with 15 points, while Osasumwen Osaghae added 14 points, six rebounds, and eight blocks for the Panthers, who finished the game with six players scoring in double figures.
The Panthers are holding opponents to 68 points per game. They gave up 77 points to the Bulldogs and will face another test from the Wolfpack on Wednesday. If they can keep NC State under 70 points, they will win this game.
Wolfpack Trying To Stay Perfect In Non-Conference PlayThe Wolfpack opened their season with a one-point loss to Georgia Tech, dropping their first ACC game of the season. They bounced back with a win over Detroit in their last game and will try to stay perfect against non-ACC teams with a win over the Panthers on Wednesday.
NC State has played well offensively, averaging 82.5 points per game. The team is shooting 42.4 percent from the field and 37.8 percent from three-point range.
Braxton Beverly led the Wolfpack to their win over Detroit, scoring 23 points in the game. C.J. Bryce added 19 points, five rebounds, and four assists, while Devon Daniels finished with 14 points and five rebounds.
The Wolfpack are giving up 73.5 points per game on the defensive end. They bounced back from their 82-point effort against the Yellow Jackets by holding Detroit to 65 points and will need another strong defensive performance to get past the Panthers.
