Tourney time! NC State vs. Pitt Game Thread!

One score and 8 years ago, Jimmy V and Vinny D led their NC State team to a surprise championship in the 1987 ACC tournament. In three memorable games, the sixth-seeded Wolfpack would defeat each of their Big 4 rivals in succession: an overtime win over 3-seed Duke, a double-overtime win over 7-seed Wake Forest, and a 1-point win over the top seeded Cheats. Classic ‘Cardiac Pack’ March magic. The Wolfpack have been unable to stand alone on the ACC mountaintop since. There have been some fun runs since, but no titles. Twenty-eight years.

The 2015 Wolfpack stand at least a reasonable chance to end that drought and deliver something long sought after and truly cherishable to the University and fanbase: some meaningful postseason hardware. If this season’s squad is going to conjure some ‘Classic ‘Pack March magic’ they start tonight against Pitt.

Lots of activity on the site, and we’ve got a fun ACC / Conference tourneys open thread going in the forums. Please jump in and share your thoughts. If you can’t be arsed to get over to the forums, feel free to use this thread to talk about the day session at the ACC tournament. Lots of good discussion going on in other threads, too.

Go Pack!
