It looks as if things may get worse before they get better on tobacco road, as the NC State Wolfpack took down the 17th ranked Duke Blue Devils, 84-82 at Cameron Indoor Stadium. The Wolfpack were lead by do-it-all freshman, Dennis Smith Jr., who tallied 32 points, 6 assists and 4 rebounds.

It was a back and forth game all night but Duke seemed to be in control for majority of the contest. In instances throughout the match up, it seemed as if Duke was ready to blow the game open, including taking its biggest lead 44-32 with 36 seconds to go in the first half. The lead was chopped to 44-38 at halftime as Smith Jr. went on a personal 6-0 run. Duke had a nine point lead with 6:23 to go in the second half before a 13-2 run by NC State to take the lead at 72-70. The lead would seesaw back and forth with NC State gaining control in the final minutes. Up 1 with 5 seconds left, Maverick Roawn made the first of two free throws. Duke freshman Jayson Tatum grabbed the rebound and attempted to take the ball up court to tie or take the lead, Tatum lost the ball crossing half-court and Smith Jr. recovered and dribbled out the clock to end the ball game.

The win was big for NC State who had lost four of their previous five games in conference, including a 107-56 blowout to North Carolina. Smith Jr. was not the only contributing factor. He received much needed support from Abdul-Malik Abu, who tallied 19 points and 9 nine rebounds and Ted Kapita came off the bench to contribute 14 points and 10 rebounds.

The loss was the fourth in seven games for Duke who have now gone 2-3 since assistant coach, Jeff Capel, replaced head coach, Mike Krzyzewski, who will be out until February with back surgery. A season that started out with Duke being the preseason Associated press top ranked team in the country, and national champion favorites, has turned into a season of adversity and controversy. With their head coach having back surgery, their top freshman missing majority of the season and their best player, Grayson Allen, being marred in controversy for tripping opponents, it seems that Duke has been in the news more for its miss-haps than its storied history of winning ball games. While their is obvious talent on this Duke roster, it will be interesting to see if Duke can turn it around and live up to the lofty expectations placed coming into the season.

The win puts NC State at 14-7 overall on the year and 3-5 in conference play. Things will not get any easier for the Wolfpack as they have six days before they travel to Louisville, Kentucky to face the Louisville Cardinals (ranked 13th nationally). Tip-off is set for 1pm. The loss put Duke at 15-5 for the year and 3-4 in conference play. Duke travels to Wake Forest on Saturday January 28th for a 3pm tip-off.
