Game Preview: Virginia Tech at N.C. State

Those of you reading this in a feed reader might need to click back to the blog to see the tables.

State's ability to get to the free throw line is the only thing that makes them even remotely functional at the offensive end of the floor. The Wolfpack are third-best in Division I at getting to the line, with just under 20% of their adjusted possessions ending in a trip to the charity stripe. (Incidentally, they're also 4th-best at keeping opponents off the line, with just over 10% of adjusted defensive possessions ending with a free throw.)

This game shapes up to be every bit as ugly as the marquee matchup tomorrow night promises to be attractive. Those of you who don't get ESPNU probably should count yourselves lucky.
