Well, you guys failed on Saturday with large Marge duties. A short turnaround time for Virginia means the Hoos don't have much time to sit and think about what coulda been, shoulda been in Durham over the weekend. Instead, they face a different Tobacco Road team whose only three wins in the last 12 games have been from Wake Forest, Pitt, and Miami. NC State's Cat Barber is in the talks for national player of the year honors, so it will be of a top priority to contain the man who's scored an average of 30.14 points per game over the last seven, despite the Pack losing four of those games.
