Preseason[edit]

National pundits talked a lot about the Wolfpack in their early preseason discussions of the top teams in the country. NC State returned its top four leading scorers from the 2011-12 season in C. J. Leslie (14.7 ppg), Lorenzo Brown (12.7 ppg), Scott Wood (12.4 ppg) and Richard Howell (10.8 ppg). In addition, NC State landed Rodney Purvis, Tyler Lewis, and T. J. Warren to wrap up a Top 10 recruiting class. ESPN’s Andy Katz had the Wolfpack as the top rated ACC squad, at No. 6, in his early predictions.[citation needed] His counterpart, Sports Illustrated’s Luke Winn, had the Wolfpack listed as the No. 5 team in the nation according to his power rankings.[citation needed] NC State was ranked 20th in the final ESPN/USA Today Coaches Poll following its Sweet Sixteen run in the NCAA Tournament.[citation needed]
