Austin Peay @ NC State

What to Know

The NC State Wolfpack and the Austin Peay Governors will face off at 8 p.m. ET November 7th at PNC Arena to kick off their 2022 seasons. Last year was nothing to brag about for NC State (11-21), so the team is looking forward to a new start. Austin Peay struggled last season, too, ending up 12-17.

A couple last-season defensive stats to keep an eye on: The Wolfpacks allowed their opponents to shoot an average of 47.20% from the floor, which was the sixth highest shooting percentage allowed in college basketball. Austin Peay experienced some struggles of their own as theys allowed their opponents to shoot an average of 46.50% from the floor, which was the 19th highest shooting percentage allowed (top 95%) in college basketball. The good news? The teams might be seeing more of their shots fall.

NC State has the odds in their favor, so they'll need to guard against complacency. These early season matchups can go either way as both teams get back into playing shape.
