DAYTON, Ohio – North Carolina State coach Mark Gottfried is the latest to compliment Temple’s Khalif Wyatt for his old-school playing style.
The ninth-seeded Owls (23-9) face the eighth-seeded Wolfpack (24-10) here Friday in NCAA tournament East Regional second-round game at University of Dayton Arena.
“As we watched more and more film of him on tape, you’re trying to find that old-school guard that you can compare him to, and we had a hard time,” Gottfried said during Thursday’s press conference.
“We were hunting for World B. Free and John Bagley or all these guys that were great players because he’s a crafty guard. He really knows how to play, knows how to get to the line. We’ve got to do a good job on him.”
