N.C. State looks to snap a three-game losing streak but must travel to Miami in the opener of a three-game road trip Wednesday.
The Wolfpack has been bruised and battered this season and wildly inconsistent. The latest skid comes after a three-game winning streak, which culminated with a victory at defending national champion Virginia.
Wolfpack Kevin Keatts has been searching for answers as to why his team cannot get going offensively and feels the lack of continuity is a product of the Pack’s injury woes.
“It’s good to have everybody back now, but we haven’t had a lot of practice time where I thought we could get everybody on the floor together to be able to get some chemistry,” Keatts said. “That’s something that we’re continuing to work on here in the next couple of days before we go to play Miami on Wednesday.”
It will be interesting to see if a trip to South Florida will kickstart the Wolfpack as the season enters the homestretch.
