RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- Two of the best players in North Carolina State history were thrown out of the Wolfpack's 76-62 loss to No. 20 Florida State on Saturday.
Tom Gugliotta and Chris Corchiani were tossed by official Karl Hess with about 6 1/2 minutes left.
Hess declined comment several times when approached after the game by an Associated Press reporter. Corchiani tweeted roughly 40 minutes after the game that Hess "didn't like fact Googs (and) I told him he was having a bad day, inconsistent, (and) telling the truth."
Gugliotta scored 1,536 points while playing for N.C. State from 1988-92, then played 13 years in the NBA. Corchiani had 1,425 points during his career from 1987-91 and spent three seasons in the NBA. Both players' jersey numbers hang from the RBC Center rafters.
