As of this morning, State (17-11) should be squarely in the NCAAT field as a 10-seed. With last night’s win, State’s RPI is 38, SOS is 2 and they are 3-4 vs. Top 25 and 3-5 vs. Top 26-50, with wins over Duke (RPI 4), at Carolina (RPI 17) and at Louisville (RPI 18). ESPN […]
After last night’s win in Chapel Hill, this website ran a headline and a couple of sentences that flippantly asked if UNC’s 1-3 record since Coach Dean Smith passed away could be the signal of the end of some kind of ‘pact with the devil’ because there would be no way that Jesus would allow […]
Please watch: It was a game that could only hurt NC State’s chances to get into the NCAA Tournament, but the Wolfpack took care of business to effectively ‘hold serve’ in Mark Gottfried’s quest to dance for the 4th consecutive season. After the win, ESPN’s RPI indicates […]

NC State currently sits at #50 in the RPI having played the 4th toughest schedule in America. State has won seven games against the Top 100 and 3 games against the Top 50. State’s only loss against a team ranked outside the Top 100 was on the road at Wake Forest.
State played its way back onto the bubble with a big 74-65 must-win at 9th-ranked Louisville today. Barber led all scorers with 21, Lacey added 14 and Anya had three blocks. This was the type of game State had struggled to finish against Notre Dame and Virginia. State has a week to prepare for Virginia […]
