    2014 marks the Wolfpack’s 25th appearance in the NCAA Tournament.

    And then Gottfried had to sweat out a day and a half before getting a happy surprise on the screen at Dail Basketball Center, where the team watched CBS’ Selection Show in private in case it delivered bad news.

    “Some of us have been in the room like that before a couple of years ago,” Gottfried said. “It’s still tough. But we knew the feeling. You’re not knowing for sure if you’re going to be called, but I feel our players earned their way into the tournament. And so we were hoping we were going to see our name, and our guys were really excited when we did.

    “I think the game with Syracuse had a lot to do to with it, but I don’t know that for sure. I also thought we played really well late. I think our schedule strength was No. 21 in the country. We lost a lot of guys from last year and could have made a choice to soften up the nonconference schedule, but we didn’t do that. I didn’t want to do that. And I played a tough non-onference schedule for the very reason of sitting here today. I hoped that would pay off for us.”


    A lot of hate out there for our inclusion, and not a lot of analysis as to why things fell the way they did.

    Joke’s on them hahahaha
