Bacot breaks records as UNC defeats NC State 80-69; Wolfpack's Terquavion Smith suffers injury



CHAPEL HILL, N.C. News — A North Carolina State University basketball player was unable to complete the Saturday afternoon game against UNC-Chapel Hill after an injury.

The Tar Heels won the game 80-69 after the teams were only a point apart at halftime.

N.C. State guard Terquavion Smith was injured in the game and did not return after his injury in the second half.

A stretcher was brought out to remove Smith.

N.C. State basketball officials later said Smith suffered an elbow and neck injury.

Just after the injury, the entire N.C. State team was huddled around Smith and they had their arms around each other as the medics worked to move him.

During the game, UNC’s Armando Bacot surpassed Tyler Hansbrough as the Tar Heels all-time leading rebounder. He now has 1,220 career rebounds (and counting).

Bacot also recorded his 61st career double-double and became UNC’s all-time leader in career double-doubles surpassing Billy Cunningham (60).
