Coach Mark Gottfried called sophomore big man Abdul-Malik Abu a ‘sweetheart’ after the Wolfpack's win over South Alabama. Abu, who finished with 14 points and six rebounds after missing most of the first half with foul trouble, pointed out there’s a good reason why he’s so nice.“Blame my parents,” Abu wrote on his Twitter account, playfully responding to an N.C. State fan after his coach’s comments were posted on Twitter. Ethan Hyman ehyman@newsobserver.com
