NC State found a way to overcome a 15-point halftime deficit, but couldn't close out Syracuse in an 87-83 loss at home. The Wolfpack wasted a 32-point effort from DJ Horne along with a double-double from Ben Middlebrooks after giving up 55 points in the first half alone.

Cory Smith and Brian Geisinger discuss the latest loss on the Postgame Podcast. The guys look back on Horne's huge night, the struggles on defense in the first half, the final possession and what the loss means for the Pack's resumé as a whole.
