N.C. State(21-13) vs. Xavier(21-12) with a tip of 9:10pm tonight at Dayton, Ohio….
Key game notes of N.C. State’s T.J. Warren from www.journalnow.com…..
• The teams(N.C. State and Xavier) have never played, but they have one close tie. Sophomore Semaj Christon, who is Xavier’s leading scorer, was the roommate of sophomore T.J. Warren, the ACC’s player of the year and top scorer, when they played together at Brewster Academy one year. They’ve kept in contact and are looking forward to going against each other.
“We have a good relationship,” said Warren, who is averaging 24.8 points a game. “I’m familiar with his game. He’s from Cincinnati, so it’s not too far from here. So it’s going to be a lot of fun to play against him in the NCAA Tournament. Really looking forward to it.”
• Warren is back on the same court where he had a rough NCAA Tournament debut as a freshman. He scored only four points on 2-of-5 shooting during a 76-72 loss to Temple at UD Arena last March. The Owls’ Khalif Wyatt scored 31 points despite an injured left thumb. The Wolfpack were one-and-done. “It was pretty tough, losing in the first round,” Warren said. “Don’t want to repeat that.”
