NC STATE at PITTSBURGH Preview

Time: 9:00
TV: ESPNU
Announcers: Mike Patrick, LaPhonso Ellis

Hello again fellow Wolfpackers, in case you haven’t noticed, and judging by the attendance you haven’t, the Pack have managed to lose a few here and there, and are threatening to climb back into the Wednesday ACCT games.

Yeah, that pretty much sums it up.

    Doesn’t matter – we lost to Central…

    Just think about that.

    Yup, 12 sounds about right.

    The Panthers need this one more than us. And we have been playing matador defense lately. So I expect this one to be ugly rather early. Time for some serious NIT Bubble-ology. Any takers?

    We play MUCH better without expectations. Pitt is ass-ugly, especially of late. Think we beat ‘em.

    Although at this point, perhaps the 8/9 seed would be better. I’d rather play UVA (hypothetically) on Friday than risk Duke sliding onto the #2 line. They’d f-ck us 6 ways to Sunday. #nightmarefuel

    Major kudos on the Buckets meme, and the Major League references.

    Does not matter, unless you are excited about the NIT. Even then, we have work to do to even make that crappy tournament.

    BTW, we’re 12th in the conference in defense?? Really?!? Who are the 3 worse teams than us?

    Lost to FSU. Struggled mightily against VT and ND. They’re not exactly hitting on all 8 cylinders.

    Call me crazy, I think we win this one.

    Hope springs eternal, I guess.

    Jiggy, Appreciate you putting this together, especially given the fact of where this team is at this point.

    … The bad news is we’ve already “seen this game”…

    Tyler handles the point…
    CUZ gets his Twenty….
    SOME of our BIGS continue to show marked improvement.. some don’t…
    ANTHONY watches for the most part..
    A Couple of other GUYS hit some shots…
    Our Defense is better than Saturday but not what it was against ‘Cuse…

    Game comes down to the wire….

    The good news is we win this one…
    and not necessarily because we deserved it…

    You people predicting defeat should be ashamed of yourselves. You have obviously not been paying attention this season. Of course we are going to win tonight. We will get our hopes up after our first top 50 win. We will talk about scenarios in the ACCT that will get us back on the bubble. Then we will lose at home to BC and show up flat at the ACCT and lose our first game. I can’t believe you call yourselves fans.

    Unfortunately, we’ve got a catch 22 brewing. If we win they won’t be top 50 any more.

    Still, I’ll take win.

    I would like to see graduation year displayed for all commenters (in addition to avatar and screen name). It would be interesting to see if the “half full” comments are coming from recent grads. As a ’93 grad, I admit my opinion is clouded as a result of saying WTNY for two decades.

    We’ve got people on here worried over whether or not we’ll face Duke or Virginia on Friday?

    I’m more concerned with Thursday.

    When seeding is the topic, then Friday matchup really is the primary concern. That’s what makes conference tourney previewing “interesting.”

    I don’t know any of the Pitt players, but two of them will have career games tonight.

    Book it !!!

    That’s OK, we’ve already lost a few that we didn’t deserve to lose.

    Hopefully, the Central game will run well past 9pm, so that we can be reminded yet again of the November loss that set the tone for this season.
