Three Points from N.C. State's 71-67 loss at Florida State:
1) Desperate times
N.C. State played 31 regular-season games, how many times during the season did the Wolfpack play with true desperation? How many times did the Wolfpack play with conspicuous urgency?
The answer matters because talent alone doesn't define greatness. It's the combination of talent with desire and the ability of a group to play with a purpose and above the level of the sum of their parts.
