Bilas with Dave Glenn

Dave Glenn, who is probably my favorite ACC writer, has been doing some great interviews. This one touches on a lot of things, but thought I'd quote his bit about State:

N.C. State has done a remarkable job. When you look at some of their individual players — Ben McCauley especially, but also Gavin Grant, Courtney Fells — their improvement from last year to this year has been phenomenal. Brandon Costner has been terrific, too. They've also done a good job over the course of the season of getting better. Despite being shorthanded, they've been able to be really competitive and win games. For the most part, you really have to play your tail off to beat them. Sidney (Lowe) has done a really good job of getting the kids to embrace his style of play. As he gets more players, more good things will happen. Right now, I'm sure it has to be difficult for him to have the kinds of competitive practices you really need. Depth is what makes that happen, and help is on the way.
