N.C. State earned itself a solid ACC home win over Syracuse on Wednesday night as the Wolfpack gave themselves another solid NCAA tournament booster.
But more importantly, they were without three players on the bench on Wednesday for various reasons. Guards Eric Lockett and Blake Harris, members of the N.C. State rotation, both were absent while transfer big man Sacha Killeya-Jones was also not at the game.
On Thursday morning, WRAL reported that Lockett had been arrested for allegedly hitting his ex-girlfriend in the face on Tuesday night. Details about the incident that led to the arrest are still unclear.
