What State accomplished, in the upsets of UNC and Virginia Tech in the regular season, followed by the magical March ride, was to reconnect with Stateâ€™s tremendous tradition. From Everett Case to Norm Sloan to Jim Valvano, State basketball was emotional, fast, and often electrifying.
Sidney Lowe gave them that back and he followed up a tremendous debut (particularly considering what seemed to be severe personnel limitations early on and with a very thin roster throughout) with tremendous recruiting.
So it seems safe to say that even if State struggles this year, the Pack is back.
Very nice acknowledgement of NC State’s basketball tradition. DBR goes on to state that, as long as NC State finds a point guard, we could have a very good season. I think we’re all in agreement on that point.
