As you happily recall, NC State, as an 8 seed, beat top-seeded Villanova 71-68 in the round of 32 this past March. As the game finished, there was an image that went viral. A member of the Villanova Marching Band, Roxanne Chalifoux, was spotted by TV cameras crying while still playing her fight song on […]
Before I sink back into my natural state of deep wolven depression, I wanted to express my sincere thanks to the players and coaches who made the wild ride of this past season possible. It came with its bumps and bruises, fits and starts, but perhaps most importantly for a program that had staggered blindly in the wilderness for so very long – we learned how to love again. That’s the first prong of why last night hurt so much, we really loved this bunch of wolves.
State just didn’t have it tonight. The Pack made a few runs, but never found any rhythm against the Louisville zone, shooting only 38% from the field. Meanwhile, Louisville’s hot-shooting continued, hitting 50% from the field. After taking a 54-53 lead with 7:19 remaining, State was outscored 14-3 over the next 5:58 as Louisville — […]
Comrades! As part of Glorious Revolution, it has come to our attention that the filthy dogs of the Western media have been spreading slanderous lies to discredit Commandant Gottfried and our Red brethren from the Oklahoma Oblast. Seems as if they have already written their Sunday columns about Michigan State and Louisville, as if Friday’s games need not be played. This is wrong, da?
No doubt, you’ve heard the concept of “house money” applied to the 2014-15 Wolfpack. Although the players aren’t just “happy to be here (in the Sweet Sixteen)” there is a consistent undercurrent in the media that State made its bones by knocking off Villanova and can now run along while the big boys finish their apéritifs.
I humbly suggest we yank away the tablecloth instead.
Penn Live Sports Columnist David Jones must live under a bridge somewhere on the Susquehanna River. He’s certainly a troll nonpareil with his latest column, and one that comes across as nothing more than a bitter screed by a sore loser: NCAA tournament: Louisville-NC State could pass for an NIT semifinal Jones starts by hurling […]
Note – The great pic from the WRAL or N&O doesn’t really tie into the article. I just like it. I really appreciate the Wolfpack extending the basketball season so that the latest OOC SOS summary will appear before we move into baseball and the long drought until football comes back on Labor Day […]
The Atlantic Coast Conference has tied the record set by the Big East in 2009 for advancing five teams into the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament. In addition to the conference’s five teams, Pac-12: 3, Big 12: 2, Big 10: 2, SEC: 1 Big East: 1 MVC: 1 WCC 1 Current records in the […]
(4) Louisville held off (5) Northern Iowa late last night in the Second Round Round of 32, 66-53. State will get a Sweet 16 rematch against the team it beat 74-65 on the road in February — a team that looked dangerous last night, finally scoring with ease against Northern Iowa, shooting 45.8% from the […]
