Maybe coach Mark Gottfried was onto something with his whole wet-blanket routine immediately following N.C. State's 84-76 win over No. 1 Duke on Saturday. Over the past 20 years, N.C. State has 14 regular-season wins over Duke and UNC. The Wolfpack's record in the next ACC game after a win over Duke or UNC is 1-12. That lone win was actually over UNC in 2002-03, which was preceded by a home win over No. 3 Duke.
