Hobbling Fells, Horner suited up for Wolfpack

The good news for N.C. State?

Guard Courtney Fells and forward Dennis Horner are dressed for Saturday’s game against North Carolina despite battling sprained ankles.

The bad news?

Fells didn’t look 100 percent healthy during warm-ups. He needs to be able to push off that ankle to effectively guard North Carolina’s Wayne Ellington.

On the home bench, Roy Williams isn’t wearing a cap to cover the five stitches on his scalp he received after hitting his head Friday afternoon in his office.

That’s a good thing.

The cap would have made him stand out even more than Sidney Lowe does in his red blazer.
