MORE SUNDAY NIGHT HOOPS

N.C. STATE 69, New Orleans (Privateers, 8,628 students, New Orleans, LA) 52

Midway through the second half of Sunday afternoon's game between NC State and New Orleans, Wolfpack coach Sidney Lowe called a time out to give his team an earful. He had done the same thing in the first half, spurring his team to take a 34-24 lead into intermission.
But the Privateers took advantage of the Wolfpack's forced shots and lax defense and cut State's lead to just seven points.

Lowe specifically addressed his starting point guard, junior Javi Gonzalez, telling him to be more aggressive with the ball.

Chris Singleton had 18 points and 10 rebounds for Florida State (6-1), which trailed by 12 points at halftime. Derwin Kitchen added 14 points.

Marquette had a late chance to win, but turned the ball over on an errant pass with 2.9 seconds remaining. The Golden Eagles (6-1) were led by 19 points from Lazar Hayward.
