Purvis, Lewis preparing for increased PG role

NC State doesn't know if star junior point guard Lorenzo Brown will be able to play Saturday against Miami, but are preparing for various scenarios.

Brown sprained his ankle in the 58-55 loss at Virginia on Tuesday, which dropped the Wolfpack to 5-3 in the ACC. Freshmen guards Rodney Purvis and Tyler Lewis will try and fill the void if Brown can't play against No. 25-ranked Miami, who is bringing a 16-3 record and 7-0 ACC mark into PNC Arena on Saturday.

NC State is a perfect 11-0 at home, but that streak will be put to the test against a senior-laden Miami squad. Sixth-year senior Julian Gamble of Durham, N.C., fifth-year seniors Kenny Kadji, Trey McKinney Jones and Reggie Johnson (the latter from Winston-Salem, N.C.), and senior Durand Scott take up four of the spots in the starting lineup.
