DURHAM, N.C. (AP) - Duke finally figured out how to play without Ryan Kelly. North Carolina State might have to do the same if Lorenzo Brown isn't healthy yet.
The Wolfpack visit the fourth-ranked Blue Devils for a rematch Thursday night, and while Duke knows it will be without one of its best players, N.C. State could be in the same situation if Brown's ankle isn't healthy enough to go.
After struggling mightily in their first few games since Kelly's injury, the Blue Devils (19-2, 6-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) have righted themselves, winning three straight to improve to 4-2 without the versatile power forward.
Now, depending on Brown's status, the Wolfpack (16-6, 5-4) may face a similar situation after their first losing streak of the season has dropped them out of the Top 25.
