Ruz, I respectfully beg to differ. I think our beloved Terps did something pretty special beating State.
NCSt is 12th in RPI and they have two legit first round prospects in Lorenzo Brown and CJ Leslie. Scott Wood is lethal from three point range. Howell just had 18 rebounds (to Mason Plumlee's 11) in their win over Duke. Those players are juniors (2) and seniors (2). Frosh TJ Warren averages double figures. After scoring 10 against Duke, the Terps held Warren scoreless.
I agree that storming the court was over the top, but NC State's students stormed the court last game when they beat Duke. We just beat the team that beat Duke. The last second tip in just made the students happy. Ruz, the young fans embarrassed you?
I got so loud at my sons' youth football games I embarrassed myself.
CCJ, Brown, Leslie, and Howell are nice players, but they're not elite. Actually, I like Howell better than Leslie. They're ranked 14th, and that's where they should have been ranked. 14th is good, but you don't rush the floor for the 14th ranked team unless you're a very small school.

- not your son's youth football team. It's a little different. Whenever the students do that in mass, there is risk of injury (which I'm sure you know has happened several times), so you gotta save it for when it counts. And a really ugly 51-50 win over NC State just ain't even close.
