RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- Lorenzo Brown's right knee is doing just fine -- and so is his mind.
The North Carolina State point guard says he's fully healed after having offseason knee surgery and insists the Wolfpack are keeping level heads despite the program's highest preseason expectations in years.
Brown said Monday during the team's media day that the Wolfpack are tuning out the chatter about possibly being the favorites in the Atlantic Coast Conference because "that can really mess up my head sometimes."
He missed roughly four weeks after having surgery in June to repair a torn meniscus. Perhaps to show off just how good he's feeling, teammate Jordan Vandenberg lifted the 6-foot-5 guard into the air and he threw down a windmill dunk.
