Itís a good sign when even your center, who has the second most blocks in the conference, nearly has a positive assist to turnover ratio.  Often overlooked among the back cuts and long balls is Cedric Simmons.  The 6-9 sophomore averages over 12 points and six boards per contest; and, fittingly with the Wolfpack, hit his only three-point attempt on the season.  The problem is Simmons canít get all the rebounds by himself and he doesnít have much help in that department.  Other than that, and a slim bench, NC State doesnít have weaknesses.  Herb Sendekís squad shoots well from everywhere on the floor, has plenty of experience and does a decent job of taking care of the ball.
