N.C. State Sidney Lowe shared the following thoughts after the game with UVa on Wednesday night. The Hoos won 59-47 to sweep the season series with the Wolfpack.
“I absolutely think that their win against us in the first game of ACC play on the road gave them confidence. Any time you win on the road it should give you confidence. They have the mental toughness, discipline and desire to win. They play with intensity, they don’t make a lot of mistakes and are physically tough. They’ve had some great wins. Like I said, anytime you have a player [like Sylven Landesberg] that can do the things he can do with shooters all around him, it makes it tough. I also think that Mike Scott doesn’t look like a physical presence but he’s aggressive and active. He’s going to bang you and push you and hold you but I mean that in a good way – I wish my guys would do more of it. They all play well together. They play with a swagger and an intensity that you like.”
