Our bench was weak and Othell's injury hurt vs. UAB,

Raker's vs. UNC.

NC State out-smarted Holland in using the preposterously-short ACC-only 3-point line to take the ACCT over us (without which they don't keep us out of the Final Four).

In that historic ACCT Final, NC State (like an NCAAT team from Baltimore County 35 years later) made 12 3Ps to our 4.


The 24-point deficit was too much to overcome in two of our most important Ls.

We bounced back from the first to reach the Final Four the season after Ralph left, and captured the all-time turnaround title after the other.

Our only Final Fours.
