NC State moved to 8-2 earlier this week with a win over Coppin State, but it came at a cost with Dusan Mahorcic suffering a dislocated patella that requires surgery. Cory Smith and Brian Geisinger discuss the impact of the loss of Mahorcic for both sides of the court, the effect on the guards and what the rotations could look like moving forward.

But it hasn't all been negative for the Wolfpack this week, as State also signed 7-footer Isaiah Miranda and will have him on campus next week. The guys discuss how he can help instantly in practice and the potential for him in Kevin Keatts' offense -- including an element that hasn't been present since Year 1 under Keatts.
