It’s getting closer. I’m honestly not sure what to expect this year. The talent is there, but we’ll have to wait and see how it all comes together.
But two Pack players are getting some big time ink. One of whom hasn’t even suited up yet.
9. Dennis Smith Jr. | NC State | Freshman | PG
Smith has responded terrifically from ACL surgery. The 6-2 guard looked as explosive as ever during games this summer. If North Carolina State makes the NCAA Tournament for the fifth time in six seasons, he’ll be the main reason why. — GP
78. Abdul-Malik Abu | NC State | Junior | PF
North Carolina State’s freshmen are getting a lot of attention, deservedly so. But don’t forget about Abu. The 6-8 forward averaged 12.9 points and 8.8 rebounds last season. He provides Mark Gottfried with a reliable veteran. — GP
And yes….Gott needs to keep his shirt on in public from now on.
Pack’s first exhibition game is a week from tomorrow.
First real timey game is two weeks from Friday vs Georgia Southern.
I love this time of year.
