The NC State basketball team finished the game portion of its exhibition tour of Italy with a 90-46 victory against Stella Azzurra in Rome. The game was stopped early in the fourth quarter because of condensation on the floor of the arena, which did not have air conditioning in temperatures that reached 100 degrees.

As has been the case with its two previous games abroad, State did not provide individual statistics.

According to the limited information that was provided, 13 of the 14 players that saw action for the Wolfpack scored. Eleven of the players had at least five points.
