N.C. State (2-0) vs. Jacksonville Dolphins (1-2)
7pm, PNC Arena
TV: Fox Sports Regional / Fox Sports South (Ch. 646 on Direct TV); Espn3 (subject to blackout)
Jacksonville Dolphins: http://www.cbssports.com/collegebasketball/teams/page/JVILLE/jacksonville-dolphins
Each of Jacksonville’s losses this season have come against previous Pack opponents – @ Hofstra (61-94), vs. Jackson St. (57-66).
Unfortunately, Jacksonville looks like a safe bet to finish w/ an RPI of well over 300 under fist year coach Tony Jasick 🙁 … that won’t do us any favors, but it is what it is.
Jacksonville’s only win came against Florida National (note that this is not Division 1 Florida International). Florida National plays in the USCAA.
The More You Know –
Florida National Men’s basketball program started in 2013: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Florida_National_University
What is the USCAA?: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Collegiate_Athletic_Association
History – We’re 44 years removed from Jacksonville playing in the NCAA championship game, losing to UCLA in the 1970 title game. Jacksonville’s last NCAA appearance was in 1986: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jacksonville_Dolphins_men%27s_basketball
Some better times for Jacksonville in recent years came in 2010, when the Dolphins swam into Tempe, AZ as an 8 seed in the NIT and knocked off 1 seed Arizona State, coached by The Desert Fox himself. Shockingly, ASU had the game more-or-less locked down leading by 11 w/ 3:59 to play – but allowed a totally unforeseen magical late Jacksonville rally:
Enjoy the game everyone!11/20/2014 at 8:53 AM #61906pakfanistanParticipant

^Thanks for the TWC channel … I googled it, but kept finding different results so I didn’t list anything 🙂11/20/2014 at 6:38 PM #61965

Nice soft touch from KW to get the and1.11/20/2014 at 7:16 PM #61969
Not too sharp early …11/20/2014 at 7:17 PM #61970
Hey, an early season reminder how much/why I hate Mike Gminski.
Stupid N&O said ESPN3, couldn’t get it to pull up and it’s because blacked out b/c on FSCR.11/20/2014 at 7:17 PM #61971
This game will prepare State for ACC slate. A foul called every 6 seconds.11/20/2014 at 7:19 PM #61972
And is this Wes muthafuckin Durham stinking it up alongside smarmy asswipe earring guy?
I remember JAX from old-school UNCC Metro days, growing up in CLT. I iz old11/20/2014 at 7:21 PM #61973
Worst combo of announcers ever
Anya is a different human
Martin brothers hustling11/20/2014 at 7:21 PM #61974
Great TEAM body language out there. SOOOOO refreshing.11/20/2014 at 7:21 PM #61975
How did that Martin combo look?11/20/2014 at 7:22 PM #61976
Main twins are like yin and yang11/20/2014 at 7:23 PM #61977
This game will prepare State for ACC slate. A foul called every 6 seconds.
^The tweets are active tonight … starters were a bit lethargic, but the twins & co. have injected some life.
^^Metro Conference! To quote Obi-wan, now that’s a name I’ve not heard for a long time …11/20/2014 at 7:23 PM #61978
Nice pass by yin.
It is not a good sign that Abu is beat up the floor by kh11/20/2014 at 7:24 PM #61979
Holy fuckballs, I have identical twins. And the Martin boys are scarily clone-like, even to me eyes.11/20/2014 at 7:25 PM #61980
Twin A reminds me a bit of Warren when he’s around the rim, Wood when he’s on the perimeter.
Confident from everywhere.11/20/2014 at 7:26 PM #61981
ALMKH should be quite fast. The full-sized version ran the court surprisingly well (ie, he wasn’t “Big Jelly” with flop sweat from walking to the scorer’s table).
So far, Caleb is Twin A, Cody Twin B. But they can compete over alpha status.11/20/2014 at 7:27 PM #61982
BC gets past New Mexico in the Puerto Rico Tip-Off, and Miami cruises past Drexel in the Charleston Classic.
‘Cuse faces California at 9pm.
Go Duke football … down w/ Red Bull.
Bit of a lackluster NFL game tonight: Chiefs/Raiders … Raiders staring down the barrel of 0-16.11/20/2014 at 7:27 PM #61983
FSU and ‘Ville are both Metro alumni IIRC.11/20/2014 at 7:28 PM #61984
Hooky cow what a block.
That is a tough set of players to get a lay up11/20/2014 at 7:29 PM #61985
Yup, the Ville was there too, and I think Memphis State. Unless they were indie.
Crap NFL game, but K State vs. WVU on FS1 is good football entertainment.
