NC State and Virginia Tech set basketball back decades on Saturday

When it was over, N.C. State had put up the lowest point total by a ranked team in more than three decades of the shot-clock era, according to ESPN Stats & Info. By the time N.C. State reached double figures - it reached 11 points on a Hellems jumper with 5:33 left - the Hokies had just 13 points themselves. His 73-point performance against the Pistons in 1978 tied Wilt Chamberlain for the fourth most ever scored by an National Basketball Association player in a single game. During that second half, the Wolfpack had a field goal drought of almost 12 minutes. NC State managed 24 points as a team.

I know what you're thinking, 47-24 sounds like a halftime score or the score early in the second half if Virginia Tech started on 12-0 run or something.

Coming into Saturday afternoon, the fast-paced Wolfpack were 22nd in adjusted offensive efficiency on KenPom and 14th nationally in points per game, dropping 84.4 points per game a night.

It was the fewest points scored by an N.C. State team since a 12-10 win over Duke in the 1968 ACC tournament and the fewest in a loss since a 39-23 decision to Seymour Johnson (the Air Force base) during the 1944-45 season.

It's been 11 years since a D-I team scored 24 or fewer points in a conference game. N.C. State (16-6, 4-5) made just 9 of 54 shots, a conversion rate of 16.7 percent that included a 2-for-28 showing from 3-point range. Two games removed from playing the hero in N.C. State's dramatic win over Clemson, he missed all nine of his 3-point attempts. But the Hokies didn't need much production against the cold-cold-cold-shooting Wolfpack. Devon Daniels added 10 points, three assists and two rebounds.

No offense to the Generals, but this game wasn't against W&L, and this game didn't take place in the pre-shot-clock era of '59.

"When I first noticed the scoreboard, it was two to five", Blackshear said of the score with just less than 10 minutes left in the first half.

"At halftime I told them to relax and let's laugh a little bit, because I said, it's 20-14", Keatts said.

"You never want to be a part of a loss like that", graduate transfer Wyatt Walker said. This was the first time N.C. State didn't claw its way back to even in those games. "But we are going to keep our confidence as a team".
