Beverly, Dorn lead NC State to important win over Syracuse

He missed all 12 of his shots, including an 0-for-9 effort from the 3-point line, in N.C. State’s home loss to Virginia Tech here on Feb. 2.

Senior Torin Dorn had a double-double (16 points, 12 rebounds) to boost the NCAA tournament case of the Wolfpack (18-7, 6-6 ACC).

Even after the struggles in the ugly 47-24 loss to the Hokies, Keatts knew Beverly would bounce back.

N.C. State’s defense, guard Devon Daniels in particular, held Battle to seven points (10 off of his average).

But the Orange) and Auburn, both figure to be in the NCAA field and N.C. State had been short on such wins.

N.C. State had been trending in the other direction with losses in five of the previous eight games but the Wolfpack got a road win at Pittsburgh last Saturday and followed that up with an encore on Wednesday.
