State basketball since, well Jim Valvano was there, has been fun. Les Robinson didn’t win a lot of games, and certainly, there wasn’t a lot of fun. Herb Sendek won some games and went to the NCAA Tournament, but really, it seemed like going to some Pack games under Sendek was like going to the dentist. New coach Sidney Lowe intends to change that. He wants to win basketball games and have fun doing so. Lowe told his players on Saturday prior to his introductory press conference, that he didn’t have a lot of rules. The only thing he asked of his players? Play hard and have fun. When Lowe played at State that’s exactly what he did. Yes, State did win games under Herb Sendek, but there never seemed to be the passion and excitement that there should have been. Sidney Lowe sure remembers as a player, the big pep rally after the stunning ’83 ACC Tournament Championship, the celebrations on Hillsborough Street after each amazing victory in that improbable ’83 tournament run. And anybody there will never forget that jam-packed electric return to Reynolds Coliseum the day after the upset of Houston to win it all. Lowe has been a part of Wolfpack glory. You know that as head coach, he wants bring that glory back. He wants State fans to love it again. But we do know this: Sidney Lowe is glad to have this chance to coach basketball at the school he led to the 1983 NCAA title. This is a man who knows N.C. State and its tradition, who’s coached basketball at the highest level and who I think will add a much needed spark in what’s been lately a successful but somewhat dull program. Just a hunch but I think the fun and excitement will be coming back to N.C. State basketball. Who can really predict the future? But hopefully for State fans the journey there will be exciting.
