NC STATE Recap: Gross

I’ll keep this short. It’s finally over. Like March itself, the Mark Gottfried era goes out like a lamb as the Wolfpack fall to the Clemson Tigers, 75-61. The Tigers handled the Pack in pretty much every statistical category – points in the paint, fast break points, rebounding, you name

The Case for the NC State Job

Outside of the ACC, the NC State head coaching position has almost come to be defined by the two previous coaching searches. To everyone looking in, it seems to be a complete mess of a job due to the terrible administration, over-bearing redneck fans and the shadow of two college

Recap: State Beats GT

The streak is over! The Pack holds on to beat the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets, 71-69, for their first win since beating Duke at Cameron Indoor on January 23rd. Playing Hard? Team defense?

The Pack had to play small ball throughout using a variety of wing heavy lineups. Offensively, Terry Henderson and Maverick

RECAP: Jackets down the Pack

Yogi must’ve been a State fan because “it’s like deja vu all over again.” We’ve heard all week about how this team is getting better. Well, if that’s what improvement looks like, I’d hate to see the inverse.  DSJ and Maverick played well, among a few others, but it just

RECAP: NC STATE VS BOSTON COLLEGE

State traveled to Boston College Wednesday night to make good following a disastrous performance last weekend at UNC. I think G-Man (Duke great Mike Gminski) summed it up nicely when he said this game had a “summer league” feel. He was being generous. The fightin’ Jesuit Eagles were just too
