In light of Carolina’s out of conference basketball success this season….I thought that I would open up the forum for your thoughts on the topic of NC State’s out of conference success over the last decade.
Let’s try to compile a list of NC State’s Ten Best Out of Conference Basketball victories of the Herb Sendek era. Regular season games only (not NIT or NCAAs)
And, let’s please don’t run off on tangents and smart-alec comments that are too far away from the central point. Let’s come up with a Top Ten list together. (I’ve been working on a list, but want to wait until hearing from you.)
I’ll start with a candidate for the top spot –
December 1, 1999 at Purdue. State wins 61-59 on Justin Gainey’s last second shot. The Boilermakers ultimately made the Elite Eight that season and ended the year 23-10, ranked #31 in the RPI and #21 in the Sagarin.
