Three Points from N.C. State's 79-78 loss to Miami:
1) What it takes
N.C. State played with a palpable intensity and desperation on Saturday in a game, arguably for the first time all season, it wasn't supposed to win. These two points are obviously connected.
N.C. State should be, as coach Mark Gottfried put it, heartbroken after Reggie Johnson's tip-in with 0.8 seconds left gave Miami a 79-78 win but the Wolfpack should not be discouraged.
