State budget cuts could mean tuition increase N.C. State’s Board of Trustees has proposed yet another tuition increase in light of projected state budget cuts. Brooke Wallig Staff Writer

In addition to the already approved $750 tuition increase, in-state undergraduates students could be facing another $300 tuition increase approved Friday by the University’s Board of Trustees, if the University’s funding is further cut by the state. According to Kelly Hook, student body president and member of the Board of Trustees, the proposal suggests a tuition increase of $300 for in-state undergraduate students and $600 for out-of-state and graduate students as a result of expected state budget cuts. “Currently they are projecting between a 10 to 15 percent budget cut, so tuition may be increased to make up for it. But I won’t be surprised if it is raised even higher than we have suggested,” said Hook. “Students should start preparing for it now.” According to Hook, the proposal will be sent to the General Admin-

istration, headed by Erskine Bowles, funds we need.” In a memorandum from the Chanwho will evaluate the board’s suggestions and will accept, reject, or alter cellor to the members of the Board of Trustees, Woodson said the Tuition the proposal. “This is simply a recommendation Advisory Committee, co-chaired by to the general administration as to Interim Provost and Executive Vice what we think the increase should be,” Chancellor Warwick Arden and said Hook. “This has two more stops Kelly Hook, recommended increases of about 6.2 perbefore it is officent for undercial, the general grad residents, administration 3.5 percent for and then the state undergrad nonlegislature.

“We refuse to offer mediocre programs. Low cost and low quality are of benefit to no one.”

“In the past three years, professors that have been promoted to higher level positions have not been allowed to have raises,” said Woodson. “This is because the current environment in the legislature.” The advisory committee advised that about 4.8 percent of the money from the tuition increase be used for the purpose of faculty promotional increases. Specifics of how the “quality and accessibility” of the University experience would be improved were not described, but Hook and Woodson said the about half of the money from the tuition increase would go to maintaining the quality of education. “Quality of education is a really broad idea,” said Hook, “but some of what that means is keeping good professors, technology in classrooms, keeping class sizes small, and making sure there is enough need-based financial aid.” Woodson said the money given to the University by the state accounts for a very large portion of the University budget, and these continuous funding cuts may cost students more than a couple hundred dollars. “We are expected to deliver a worldclass education, and these budget cuts

make that difficult. We have historically been well-funded by the state, but now that the state is not providing us with these funds it is becoming harder to keep the same level of education,” said Woodson. “If we continue to see these budget cuts, we are either going to have to look for more private sources of funding or we are going to see programs cut. We refuse to offer mediocre programs. Low cost and low quality are of benefit to no one.” According to Woodson, if the University sacrifices quality for low cost, the reputation of the University and the value of a degree from N.C. State would be tarnished. “We are still the least expensive University among our peer institutions, and we want to be the least expensive University in the country,” said Woodson. “However, if we let the quality of our university slip because we are trying so hard to keep costs low, the reputation we worked so hard to achieve over 125 years will be lost very quickly.”

NCCU newspapers trashed NCCU administration publicly condemned the trashing of copies of the student newspaper. Staff Report In an apparent retaliation of two controversial stories published within the last six weeks, hundreds of copies of the NCCU student newspaper, Campus Echo, have been trashed. One such controversial story was published Oct. 6. This article, “Business School Blues,” covered the controversy over the dismissal of the NCCU Business School Dean Bijoy Sahoo. Sahoo was replaced after a review by a university task force questioned his leadership. Shortly afterwards, hundreds of newspapers disappeared from the Willis Commerce Building. Newspapers disappeared near the sociology building and student union after the second controversial story was published Nov. 3. “Sociability Shortage in Sociology” detailed a conflict between student Dontravis Swain, who was later suspended from the university, and assistant professor of sociology, Dana Greene. The person or people dumping the newspapers has not be found, but the action is illegal. Charges include larceny, petty theft, criminal mischief or destruction of property.


The Wolfpack begins their attack on UNC-Chapel Hill during the Quidditch tournament Sunday. Jacqueline Garcia, a sophomore in fasion and textile management, Weston Sadovy, a material science and engineering, Cory Temple, a sophomore in Physics and Natalie Claunch, a sophomore in zoology, take off at the start of a game. In the beginning of a Quidditch match, all players must have their brooms on the ground and players must close their eyes. When the announcer calls “brooms up,” all players grab their brooms and charge to the center of the field, where all the balls are located.

Nick Topine, a freshman in computer science, serves as the commissioner for the Wolfpack Quidditch Club. Toptine organized the first annual Tobacco Road Quidditch Cup Tournament, which took place Sunday on Lee Field. Toptine made sure that everything ran smoothly.


The Wolfpack Quidditch Club held their first Tobacco Road Quidditch Cup Sunday in Lee Field. Each Quidditch team consists of seven players on the field at once: three chasers, two beaters, a keeper and a seeker. Teams are encouraged to have up to 20 members for substitutions and in case of injuries. N.C. State won the tournament with an overall score of 430 points including the points from catching the snitch twice. The other schools playing in the tournament were University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, University of North Carolina at Greensboro and Duke University. UNC-CH came in second place in overall score with 170 points. Duke and UNC-G trailed close behind, though Duke caught the snitch in every one of their three games, giving them second place in number of wins. Nick Toptine, the commissioner of the club and a freshman in computer science, started the club in 2009 and now has over 40 members on the roster. Toptine said he hopes next semester the club can host a tournament that brings all colleges in the Carolinas with a Quidditch club together.

The Tobacco Road Quidditch Cup will become an annual event for the Wolfpack Quidditch Club. Toptine said he was “surprised at how many people actually showed up.” “We had close to 350 to 400 people show up over all,” Toptine said. Toptine said he was very happy with how the entire event turned out. Members of the Wolfpack Quidditch Club cooked and sold various Harry Potter treats as a fundraiser, including cauldron cakes, chocolate frogs, and butterbeer. “We made about $370 in concessions,” Toptine said.

UAB facing financial trouble Because of fall semester activities, the UAB budget is decreasing. Caitlin Barrett Staff Writer

The Union Activities Board is broke and there are disputes over why that may be. According to UAB treasurer Jeff Moan, this year the UAB has a budget of $430,897 and part of that comes from the $15.13 fee students are charged each year to support UAB. This semester the UAB has put on two major events, Friday Fest and the Ludacris concert. The Ludacris concert cost them $35,000 and Friday Fest cost $90,000. With $125,000 of their budget gone, plus the fees they have to pay every year, not much of the budget is left to plan events for the rest of the year. Moan said last year the board had to take control of the campus cinema, which they had never had to do in the past. The UAB currently spends $51,000 on stipends for cinema staff and concessions, which takes up a large part of the budget. When compared to the cost of Ludacris it is enough money to put on another large event. This year’s free concert is not something students can expect to happen more in the future. The Air Force Reserve went to UAB and pitched them the idea of the concert and paid for what UAB could not cover. Without the Air Force Reserve such a high profile concert would have never happened, according to Moan. Despite questions about how wise it was to have the concert he UAB feels great about the turnout and reactions to it.

Lamb said, “We have a pretty “Anytime I think you can shove 7,000 students in a 60 good idea of what kind of monyear old building for a concert ey we are going to spend, we is incredible, even if you don’t kind of use those sort of things like Ludacris I think the ener- as guidelines for what we are gy you could feel in that coli- doing.” Caleb Fernandez, a sophoseum was just incredible,” Will more in business adminisLamb, UAB president, said.

“People say we don’t have any money left but that’s not really true.”







The last tuition increase passed in the summer and increased students’ tuition by $750. The Board of Trustees approved a campus-initiated $300 tuition increase for Fall 2011. The University is bracing for more budget cuts from the state.


Students should not complain to the University for the increase or claim they never had a voice. The University and Student Government gave students ample opportunity to submit their input. If students still have ideas, they should contact the UNC Board of Governors to voice their concerns before it gets the final approval.


Speak for yourself

he Board of Trustees has approved another campus-initiated tuition increase with hardly an utterance from the student body. If the UNC Board of Governors approves this increase, then students will be looking at $300 more on their fall bill. While the summer’s $750 increase was a rushed surprise from the University, this increase has been in the works for months and there has been plenty of time for the student body to voice its opinion. At this point, students need to avoid the knee-jerk reaction of saying the increase is a surprise and learn from it. Both the University’s Tuition and Fee Committee and Student Government have been asking for input and trying to inform people about the possi-

bility of an increase all semester. There were three town hall meetings where students could voice their opinions, concerns and ideas. Student Government tried to advertise and make students aware of them, but attendance was abysmal. The moment to point fingers at the officials who were formulating these plans was at these meetings where all the facts were laid out on the table. Student attendance at these meetings and constant e-mail feedback about ideas and the process would have made University officials think harder about the considerations they were taking. And if they didn’t follow through with the sug-

gestions or ignored them, the students would have had something to hold over their heads in the end. Now, the students have nothing to hold the University to. This is a lesson to take University open meetings seriously. Those town hall meetings may have appeared to be a facade, but if people had attended and provided feedback, they may have been proven wrong. The main question upset students need to ask is “where is the University going to get the money, if not from the student body?” The tuition increase has already been approved by the University, but is still waiting approval from the UNC Board

of Governors. At this point, students should contact the UNC Board of Governors or the chancellor, and urge them to send it back to the University for another round of input and town hall meetings. To prevent this in the future, students need to empower themselves. The Technician received a letter to the editor in response to a previous staff editorial that scolded the student body for their lack of attendance at one of these tuition town hall meetings. The writer argued that the students’ voices don’t have any power and it would have been pointless to go. While this may or may not have been true, students are only making assumptions and giving the University the power to make their decisions for them.

The power of poetry


recent ly attended t wo events that seemed at first blush to be quite different: a poetry reading delivered in Arabic and English sponsored by CH ASS, Jeffery and a dinner Braden of U.S. Special Guest Columnist Operations Command officers to which I’d been invited by Col. Ken Rataschack, Commander of N.C. State’s ROTC unit. The contrast between the two groups was striking. The young students, some in jeans and T-shirts, others wearing hijabs, slouched in a standingroom-only lecture hall in Ricks to hear poetry. The special operations soldiers, uniformed, beribboned, and standing tall with ramrod posture, made small talk before dinner. Despite their differences in appearance, the groups were united in their common hunger for understanding. The students attended the poetry reading to understand and appreciate other, non-Western cultures. Whether through the lenses of poetry, history, religion, languages or literature, they want to make sense of the world. They require no convincing that the wisdom of the humanities is essential to a world view that allows them

We are Americans When I transferred to State my sophomore year, I was excited to embrace the customs and traditions of my new University. As I prepare for graduation, I have no doubt I will forever be a faithful member of Wolfpack Nation. However, I wish to go on-record in disagreement with a certain tradition. That tradition is the act of shouting “RED” and “WOLFPACK” during the playing of the National Anthem. ¬†While the Star Spangled Banner is played, we do not stand as Wolfpack, Tarheels or Blue Devils. We stand as Americans, united in honor, respect and remembrance of

to understand others -- and themselves -- in a frame of reference that is larger than their own narrow experiences. As I shook his hand, Lt. General John Mulholland made it clear he wanted to forge ties with our college, to create opportunities for his soldiers to better understand these same issues -- and in the same ways. His comments to me, and those of the officers around our dinner table, underscored their intense desire to understand how people from other cultures view the world and their role within it. They -- like those at the poetry reading -embraced history, literature, culture, social sciences and languages as a means for better understanding an ambiguous, changing and increasingly complex world. Even as West Point has overhauled its curriculum to require more humanities courses, other universities are reducing humanities offerings. For example, SUNY-Albany recently announced they plan to close entire language majors. It is ironic that our military better understands the value of the humanities and liberal arts for preparing future leaders than perhaps some of our own universities.

We need to ensure our graduates are ready to understand the languages and lessons of other cultures, and that they can recognize, tolerate and even thrive on ambiguity. It is not just a question of being a well-educated person; it is a question of surviving in a world that, as New York Times columnist and author Thomas Friedman has noted, is increasing hot, flat and crowded. Therefore, even as we face what may be the worst budget cuts in N.C. State’s history next year, CHASS will seek to hire faculty to teach in Middle East Studies and Chinese, and will do its best to protect offerings and programs in the humanities and social sciences. We remain committed to building a bridge founded on understanding each other’s world views. Ultimately, poetry may prove more powerful than weapons for achieving success and stability in the 21st century.

those who have fought and are fighting for our freedom. We stand to defend the honor of the country we call home, not to exalt the comparatively trivial accomplishments of our respective teams. I think 60 seconds of reverent reflection is a great prelude to three hours of sportsman-like division. Even if our team has a losing season, we bring honor upon ourselves by exhibiting good sportsmanship, and I hope that our students would lead the way to doing so.

The purpose of Senate is address large issues on behalf of the student body and to help bring them to the forefront of both the Administration and the Student Body’s attention. The Executive Branch serves to help erect change on campus on a faster timeline than the Senate can as we only meet every two weeks to consider legislation in front of the entire body. Also, in response to the title of the Viewpoint article “Student Senate, stop wasting time,” I would like to redirect that at you, “Technician, stop wasting students time.” Yes, your coverage of Senate is wonderful, but in the same edition of the paper you have an article written - by a grad student - addressing how men should dress. You also forgo coverage of the annual “Protect the Tunnel” event that happens every year before the State-UNC football game as well as cover the start of the student designed T-shirts a week after they went on sale. Congratulations Technician, you have successfully become the pot calling the kettle black.

A note on wasting time In response to the Nov. 19 editorial, I would like to bring a few things to your, and the Student Body’s attention. First of all, the Senate is a bureaucratic body by nature. It takes the Senate time to do things because that is way we are intended to operate under the Student Body Constitution. The idea for the bill was created jointly with the Executive Branch’s Academics Director and filed for Senate consideration in between the Roundtable and the Chancellor’s Liaison meetings.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part One is just a small fraction of the magic. The six previous film adaptations of the novels created one of the biggest franchises in the world. With Harry Potter’s popularity, Universal Studious in Orland, Florida decided to bring this magic to life. The Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme area in Universal’s Islands of Adventure park opened this past summer to an opening day of over seventy-thousand “muggles”, dressed up and excited just as much if not more than they are at the midnight showings of the movies. The theme area depicts Harry Potter’s world in a very imaginative way. Snow covers the rooftops of Olivander’s Wand Shop and Honeyduke’s sweet shop. Hogwarts lies in the background, which is the most breathtaking sight that left some people in tears. Upon entering the new area, the Hogwarts Express emits steam out of its engine, and its conductors tell stories of the magical school for witchcraft and wizardry. Olivander’s allows one lucky guest to try out a wand for himself and allow the wand to choose him. Honeyduke’s has the delicious treat of chocolate covered frogs bouncing on the countertops. Butterbeer is served by the cup, and guests could have a drink outside the Three Broomsticks and the Hog’s Head, both of which are classic Harry Potter dining locations. Previously called Dueling Dragons, the racing rollercoaster now takes the shape of the TriWizard Tournament Dragon Challenge, where Hogwarts races against Beauxbatons Academy of Magic to win the competition.










The main attraction at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter is Hogwarts Castle.

Other features include the wanted posters for Siris Black displayed throughout the new park’s theme area and Moaning Myrtle crying that can be heard in the girl’s bathroom. The main attraction, though, is Hogwarts. The line for the ride inside, Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey, takes guests through the Griffindor Common Room, the defense against the dark arts classroom, Dumbledoor’s office, and more. Holograms of Dumbledore, Harry, Ron, and Hermonie appear and begin talking to guests in an amazing display of technology.

Freshman Engineering Design Day showcases student work All 1350 first-year students in engineering will present design projects Tuesday in the McKimmon Center Mark Herring Staff Writer

Engineering naturally tends to get a wrap as a college that bogs students down in technical subjects, like advanced math and physics, which can lead to many late nights at D.H. Hill with too much caffeine. However, the largest college on campus is coming together all day Tuesday to focus on a broader picture than just the sum of its parts—design. For the past eleven years, the College of Engineering has hosted Freshman Engineering Design Day, an all day program devoted to the presentation of various design projects that all 1350 first-year engineering student have worked on for the past few weeks. “The event itself is a way for students to display and compete with their design projects,” Hailey Queen, Engineering Academic Advisor as well as event organizer, said. “In the introduction class E101, stu-

dents learn about the design will be followed up by speaker, cycle and in the last part of the Lloyd Yates, who is representcourse they actually work on ing Progress Energy and will be able to talk about things going these projects.” Freshman students chose on in industry.” As part of the annual lecture from nine projects to work on and will display their work, series, Yates, president and science-fair style, in the Mc- chief executive of Progress Kimmon Center.

non-engineers.” The College of Engineering has put a large emphasis on the relationship between students and industry. In an article in the Wall Street Journal published in September, N.C. State ranked 15th out of the top schools for connecting engineering students to careers. The Freshman Engineering Design Day parallels the college’s outlook, and of the professors and faculty judging the students’ projects, representatives from industry, including GE, Progress Energy and IBM, will be reviewing the projects. The goal of the program is to allow students to concentrate on the hands-on design aspect of engineering as well as learn how to take advantage of resources on campus. “Students will have a $40 spending limit on their projects,” Queen explained. “This mirrors much of the real world, since many projects will have a budget. Also, it’s a good opportunity for students to utilize resources and opportunities on campus, like the craft center in Thompson Hall.” Along with the design aspect, the event also aims to spur teamwork amongst students.

Taylor Russell, freshman in aerospace engineering, adjusts a component of his E101 freshman design project.

“This project has definitely helped us in our teamwork skills,” David Bohle, a freshman in mechanical engineering, said. “I think that it will be good to see that one design is not the answer to a single problem. This very much so is like the real world. If you need to build a bridge, then you need to see different designs and hear different opinions.” Bohle. along with his partners Alton Russell and Austin Underwood, are working on a project to design a water fountain. “Every E101 student must choose a project, so we chose the water fountain,” Russel, a

freshman in biomedical engineering, explained. “The objective is to design a water fountain that would go in a foyer or a lobby of a building. I think we have a good chance to do well in the competition.” The event is not exclusive to just engineering students. The McKimmon center will welcome parents of the competing students as well as students from K-12 school who are interested in learning more about engineering.

Pack falls to Richmond A late layup by Richmond hands Pack its second loss of the season. Staff Report A late comeback attempt came up short for the women’s basketball team in its 81-75 loss to Richmond on Saturday, despite four players scoring in double figures. Marissa Kastanek followed up her career-high 25-point performance against Alabama on Wednesday with a 19-point effort against the Spiders. Junior Bonae Holston recorded her second double-double of the season with 14 points and 12 rebounds. Joining Kastanek and Holston in double-digits were Amber White and Brittany Strachan, who notched 16 and 12 points, respectively. Trailing 52-37 at halftime, the Wolfpack went on a 15-4 run to begin the second half, cutting the deficit to 56-52. State was able to draw within three points with 23 seconds left to play, but a layup by Richmond’s Brittani Shells secured a Spiders victory. After two wins to open the season, the Pack has dropped its last two games , evening its record to 2-2 on the season.

Yates rolled right, then fired a jump ball into the same corner of the end zone where Spencer scored a quarter earlier. Yates’ heave harmlessly fell to the ground and the Pack held on to a two-point cushion. Leading by two, State was forced into a three-and-out and had to punt the ball back

31st, when they shutout Boston College 3-0. The first set was straightforward as State remained in the lead for the entire set, eventually winning 25-23. Unlike the opening set, the second set was a back-andforth affair with 13 ties and four lead changes. A controversial call by the referees highlighted the second set and resulted in the winning point for the Jackets, as they took the second set 25-23. With the unfortunate call in the back of players’ minds, the Wolfpack ladies rebounded with a solid .455 attacking percentage in the third set and dominated Georgia Tech, resulting in a 25-15 win and bringing the match to 2-1. State closed out the match with a 25-21 victory in the final set, which saw 15 ties and five lead changes. Smith said she was excited about breaking the 11-year victory drought against Georgia Tech. “It feels pretty good,” Smith said. “I’m glad that we could do that for the program. I’m really proud of my teammates.” The second game of the weekend against Clemson was not nearly as one-sided. There were 38 ties and 23 lead changes in the match. Junior Kelly Wood notched a careerhigh 29 digs while both Smith and junior Luciana Shafer recorded double-doubles. De-

spite their performances, it was not enough to take home the win as the Tigers defeated the Wolfpack 3-1. Despite the Senior Night loss, Angel said she was still proud to be standing with fellow seniors Smith and Pritchard after the three arrived at State as a part of a 10-player recruiting class. “It was bittersweet because no one likes to lose,” Angel said. “I hated that that’s how it ended. I couldn’t have asked for a better senior night, though. So many people were there. It was really an amazing feeling. I came from a recruiting class of ten and to be standing there with the two other girls that had made it the whole time with me was kind of surreal.” The team will cap off its season on the road Friday night against rival North Carolina. The Wolfpack was swept 3-0 when the two teams last played in September, but spoiled the

Tar Heels’ Senior Night last season. Angel said she is hopeful the team can mirror last year’s upset and put a happy ending on her career at State. “I want to go out with a bang,” Angel said. “If I can’t go home for Thanksgiving, I’m kicking someone’s butt. It’s our last game against our biggest rival. I want to beat those girls more than anything in the world. That would be the most amazing way to end my career for volleyball.”

to the Heels with just less than a minute to play. Senior Jeff Ruiz, who had not punted since the Pack’ overtime loss to ECU more than a month ago, picked a good time for a career-best 57 yarder that pinned the Heels on their own 4-yard-line. Redshirt sophomore linebacker Terrell Manning broke through the of-

fensive line to record a safety and his team’s seventh and final sack of the afternoon, making it 29-25, Wolfpack. But the outcome remained up in the air during two onside kicks by UNC. State recovered the first one, but was penalized for moving before the snap to allow Carolina another op-

portunity. The Pack recovered the second one as well to allow Wilson and Co. to kneel the ball and officially give the seniors a perfect 4-0 record against the rival Tar Heels. “This is the greatest highlight of my career,” senior linebacker Nate Irving said. “So far.”

The N.C. State men’s and women’s cross country teams will be competing in the NCAA Championships today in Terre Haute, Ind. The women’s 6k race will begin at 12:08 p.m. followed by the men’s 10k race at 12:48 p.m. Freshman Laura Hoer, winner of four of the five races she has entered this season, will pace the women’s team as it makes its NCAA-record 26th appearance. Junior Andie Cozzarelli and redshirt senior Kara McKenna, both All-NCAA Regional performers, will join Hoer as the team aims for a high finish. The men’s team, which is ranked No. 16 in the latest national poll, will be led by 2009 All-American Ryan Hill and 2010 All-NCAA Regional performer Andrew Colley. It will be the 23rd appearance at the NCAA Championships for the men’s team.

Football back in rankings After its 29-25 victory over North Carolina on Saturday, the N.C. State football team reenters the national polls with a No. 21-ranking in the Associated Press Top 25 poll. It marks the third time this season the Wolfpack (8-3, 5-2 ACC) has been ranked. The other two occurrences came after wins against Georgia Tech on Sept. 25 and Florida State on Oct. 28. Coach Tom O’Brien and Co. have had a recent trend of short-lived stays in the polls, however, as the team lost its following game each time it entered the rankings.

converted on one of the most improbable touchdowns of the season. Redshirt junior quarterback Russell Wilson rolled right, reversed field twice, and then, with a pass rush in his face, lofted the ball toward a crowd in the back corner of the end zone. The pass appeared to carom off the hands of Darrell Davis and into the arms of a diving Spencer, whose highlight-reel reception withstood an official review and was named SportsCenter’s No. 1 play in its nightly Top 10 highlight reel.



“It was a prayer, and it was answered,� coach Tom O’Brien said. After the score, emotions still running high from the late hit on Wilson boiled over. An altercation between the Heels’ Kevin Reddick and the Pack’s Jarvis Williams resulted in both players’ ejections. The defense quickly forced the Tar Heels to punt to junior wide receiver and return man T.J. Graham, who raced 87 yards untouched up the sideline to put his team ahead 24-19 with 14 minutes remaining.

After another stop by the defense, freshman running back Mustafa Greene and sophomore running back James Washington led the Pack down the field for a field goal that made it 27-19. But Carolina responded by advancing the ball to the N.C. State 12-yard-line, where it faced fourth-and-two. A play-action pass by T.J. Yates appeared to fall incomplete, but the Heels’ Josh Adams recovered after the ball bounced

Pack can’t keep up with Hoyas Volleyball downs Yellow

Staff Report The N.C. State men’s basketball team dropped its first game of the season Sunday night in an 82-67 loss to No. 20 Georgetown in the championship game of the Charleston Classic. A 15-0 second half run spurred the Hoyas to victory over the young Pack team, which was playing without the services of senior forward Tracy Smith who underwent arthroscopic knee surgery following the East Carolina contest. State held the lead over Georgetown for much of the first half before heading into halftime tied at 37. The second half began much like the first half ended, as both teams battled for the lead. The Pack

The men’s basketball team was hit with bad news over the weekend as senior forward Tracy Smith underwent arthroscopic knee surgery Friday afternoon, however, no major damage was found. The preseason All-ACC selection played only six minutes in the Wolfpack’s win over East Carolina on Thursday before the sore knee forced him to the bench. Smith is expected to return to the hardwood in three weeks. SOURCE: N.C. STATE ATHLETICS

held a 44-42 advantage following two DeShawn Painter free throws with 16 minutes left to play, but a highlight reel dunk by Georgetown’s Austin Freeman sparked a 15-0 run and gave the Hoyas a lead they would never relinquish. Sophomore Richard Howell had another big game for the Pack, finishing with 14 points and eight rebounds after posting a double-double in his previous game against George Mason. Painter filled in nicely for the injured Smith, finishing with 10 points and seven rebounds. The Pack did not have its best shooting day, going 25-63 from the field and 4-17 from behind the arc. The Wolfpack followed up its 85-65 tournament-opening victory over East Carolina on Thursday with a 78-65 win over George Mason on Friday. The team rallied past the Patriots

behind a strong secondhalf defensive effort. State used a team effort to build a 10-point lead by halftime, but George Mason did not shy away. The Patriots came out of the locker rooms hitting on all cylinders and claimed a 56-55 lead with 12 minutes to go. But the Wolfpack responded with a 19-2 run to reclaim the lead and would never look back, winning by the final score of 78-65. With senior guard Javier Gonzalez in early foul trouble, freshman Ryan Harrow filled in and did not disappoint, leading all Pack players with 14 points. Howell finished with 13 points and 11 rebounds while Painter played a career-high 27 minutes in Smith’s absence,

Jackets, falls to Tigers Seniors have a bittersweet final home game in loss to Clemson. Josh Hyatt Staff Writer

The N.C. State volleyball team defeated Georgia Tech 3-1 Friday night before falling victim to Clemson the next evening on Senior Night by the same score, 3-1. The victory Friday night marked the first time in 11 years the team has beaten the Yellow Jackets. The weekend’s results bring the Pack’s record to 14-17 overall and 4-15 in the ACC. Saturday’s matchup against Clemson was the final home game for the three seniors on

the team, Alex Smith, Jana Angel, and Taylor Pritchard. Although the seniors played their last game in a Wolfpack uniform, Pritchard said the feeling had not quite set in yet following the contest. “It was really sad,� Pritchard said. “I don’t think it’s actually hit me yet since we still have a week of practice and another game left. It will feel a little different after we’re actually done. It’s really sad to know that was the last time I’ll be playing in front of our fans, my family, and with my teammates at Reynolds.� The victory against Georgia Tech marked the first time the ladies won a match since Oct.
