RALEIGH, N.C. -- It didnt take Omer Yurtseven long to show flashes of the shooting touch and range that made him a big international recruit for North Carolina State.The 7-foot Turkish freshman had nine of his 12 points in the first half Thursday night to highlight the Wolfpacks 97-64 win against Appalachian State, a good first step for a player who had to wait a month to make his college debut due to an NCAA eligibility dispute.I was not nervous, Yurtseven said. I was excited though. The first time when I was going on the court, I was excited.The NCAA had required the five-star freshman to sit out the first nine games and pay $1,000 to charity after reviewing his time playing for a club team overseas. He entered at the 14:57 mark of the first half and played 24 minutes, making 4 of 6 shots and even stepping out to knock down a 3-pointer from the top while drawing loud cheers from fans -- some coined it Yurtmas on social media -- for the home-standing Wolfpack (8-2).It was really fun, Yurtseven said. I really missed being out there.Fellow freshman Dennis Smith Jr. finished with 22 points to lead N.C. State, which scored the first 10 points and led big all night. Maverick Rowan added 13 points in his second game back from a seven-game absence due to a concussion, while N.C. State shot 52 percent.He spaces the floor, Smith said of Yurtseven, he knows how to roll, sets great screens, hes very smart, high IQ, sees the floor pretty well. He just makes the offense a lot better.Ronshad Shabazz scored 14 points for the Mountaineers (3-6), who shot 32 percent after entering the game shooting about 45 percent on the season.We had tremendous opportunities to make shots, shots we usually make, and we just missed them today, Mountaineers coach Jim Fox said. It affected us and when you keep missing and missing wide-open shots, it takes a toll on you and carries on to other parts of the game.BIG PICTUREAppalachian State: The Mountaineers suffered another big loss to a power-conference opponent. They trailed by as many as 26 before losing 103-94 in the second game at Tennessee, lost by 35 at Duke on Nov. 26 and by 33 against the Wolfpack.N.C. State: Adding Yurtseven meant this was the first game the Wolfpack was at full strength. For coach Mark Gottfried, the focus now is to integrate Yurtseven into the rotation and get him adjusted to American basketball while simultaneously bringing along a young rotation that hasnt played much together -- one he hopes will have a very different look come February.Weve got a little more depth now, Gottfried said, which is nice.HANDS OFFYurtseven had foul trouble during two exhibition games, including when he fouled out in just 11 minutes against Division II Barton. He had four fouls Thursday but managed to avoid major trouble in what will be a big part of his adjustment to the American college game.You just have to watch the referees, Yurtseven said. They talk to you, so they tell you what youve got to do, what you shouldnt do.GOTTFRIEDS TAKELike Smith, Gottfried sees plenty of potential for Yurtseven to make an impact with his shooting and passing touch.When the balls in his hands, especially in the high post, hes really effective, the coach said. And (the players) know that. Again, I think the more he plays with our guys, the more they play and just get comfortable, hes going to find ways to score within our offense.But I do think our guys are excited about playing with him because hes such a good passer. I think that does a lot for our team.UP NEXTAppalachian State: The Mountaineers host James Madison on Saturday.N.C. State: N.C.

SHANGHAI --?Andy Murray admits his proximity to world No. 1 Novak Djokovic in the rankings has caused him to reassess his short-term targets.A straight-sets victory over Roberto Bautista Agut in the final of the Shanghai Masters, winning 7-6 (1), 6-1 in 96 minutes, gave the Scot his sixth title of the year.More importantly, it moved him to within 915 points of Djokovic, who lost to Bautista Agut in the semifinals.With Murray currently in top form, having won 20 sets in succession to take the China and Shanghai titles, he has now set his sights on the Serbians position at the top of the rankings -- although he admits overhauling the 12-time Grand Slam winner will be difficult.My goal wasnt to finish No. 1 at the end of this year, but in the early parts of next year, there is an opportunity, he said. 900 points doesnt seem like loads. But Novak will win matches. He is the best player in the world. I dont think he has lost an indoor [match] in a long time.Murrays form is on an upward curve, and the Olympic gold medalist is pleased with how changes to his game have made a difference.ddddddddddddIn the last few months, I have won a lot of matches and made improvements, he added.I have been moving forward better and changed the direction of the ball better. I have also come up with some bigger serves when I have needed them.Murrays victory in Shanghai was his 41st career title, and he won it with very little fuss once he had comfortably negotiated a first-set tiebreak.Things went with serve until Murray broke his Spanish opponent to take a 4-3 lead, but when Bautista Agut broke back and then made it 6-5, Murray took the first set to a tiebreak with a love game.He cruised through the tiebreak to make it 19 sets won in a row, before three breaks of service to one for his opponent in the second set eased the Briton into a 5-1 lead. From there he closed out the match with a number of 100 mph second serves and powerful groundstrokes. ' ' '
