NC State's program receiving positive buzz

NC State coach Mark Gottfried started to smile at the thought of playing an opponent who wants to get up and down the court.

The No. 11-seeded Wolfpack play No. 6-seeded San Diego State at 12:40 p.m. Friday in Columbus, Ohio. The Aztecs (26-7) are known for their running game and the Wolfpack are excited at the possibilities.

NC State has become the trendy pick in the Midwest region, but Gottfried knows that attention is fleeting. He also knows that San Diego State has some talented players, led by Mountain West Conference player of the year Jamaal Franklin.

Gottfried expects to play sophomore power forward C.J. Leslie, senior shooting guard C.J. Williams and possibly even sophomore point guard Lorenzo Brown against the high-flying 6-foot-5 forward.
