Fresh off Sidney Lowe’s first Raleigh Caravan, our blogging minds have turned back to basketball – particularly, Wolfpack retro. As a fun off-season exercise, a few of us brainstormed about rough comparisons of the 2007-08 roster to Wolfpackers of the past. Please share your own comps and thoughts in the comments section below. Our memories […]
NC State will battle ‘sister’ STATE school, Michigan State in this year’s ACC/Big 10 Challenge. The Atlantic Coast Conference has dominated the ACC/Big 10 Challenge – sweeping all of the eight previous events. The Wolfpack will travel to East Lansing on Wednesday, November 28th for a 7:00 pm game that will be televised on the […]
Yes, we know it is early, but Joe Lunardi has NC State as a #2 seed in the 2008 NCAA Tournament.
Here’s some nice press for Lowe and company: 25. NC State Sidney Lowe’s team loses senior point guard Engin Atsur, but look for Iowa State transfer Farnold Degand to step in and provide help running the team. Degand will have plenty of weapons as the Wolfpack return their other four starters â€” Brandon Costner, Gavin […]
– Butler’s Lickliter takes Iowa job. Analysis: Solid, sensible hire. – Creighton head man Dana Altman heads to Arkansas. Analysis: We expected him to be more of a candidate for the Iowa job, but Altman (in our view, correctly) viewed Arkansas as a better job. Altman’s Bluejay teams played a style that Hog fans will […]
I started to feel like my cautious optimism is at least warranted, when I read that Dave Glenn is drinking Sid’s Kool Aid: If Atsur had another year, this team would have had an incredibly high ceiling. As it is, the key factor moving forward for the Wolfpack will be the development of a reliable […]
JJ Hickson led all scorers on the East team last night with 14 points last night at Louisville’s Freedom Hall. We caught this blurb on Hickson in the morning paper: The latest greatest high school players bounced through Freedom Hall in the 2007 McDonald’s game last night. I’ve made many silly predictions in my life. […]
The game will be televised on ESPN at 8 p.m. (EST). Can use this topic as a game thread.
There have been a lot of impressive reports on JJ Hickson this week. We got the ok, to take a couple quotes from the article on PackPride.com. (well worth the subscription) The Georgia native had yet another strong performance in practice Monday, showing an emerging perimeter game that was non-existent for so long. He displayed […]
I’m done feeling sad/angry about the season being over. It’s time to look forward. Here’s what I envision for next year: Starters: Javi/Degand (PG), Fells (SG), Costner (SF), McCauley (PF), Hickson (C) First wave of reserves: Degand/Javi (PG), Horner (SG/SF), Grant (SF) Second wave of reserves: Johnson (SG), Smith (SF/PF) or Thomas (SF) Thoughts/Analysis: – […]
