Most of the time this would be a hard question: Where were you 15 years ago tonight? But for myself and 19,000+ other State fans, that’s an easy quest[See the full post at: Where Were You 15 Years Ago Tonight?]11/19/2014 at 10:25 AM #61863WallyBParticipant

I was there!11/19/2014 at 10:57 AM #61868ClarksaParticipant
I was there…for both opening nights. The Hurricanes hired the same crew that produced the Superbowl halftime show and Big Voodoo Daddy played…it was lame. It think we walked out some high profile Pack supporters and had a little speech where they tried to pass off the new electronic noise meter to replace the one in Reynolds. Low key approach.11/19/2014 at 12:58 PM #61872WTNYParticipant
Never have liked the place.11/19/2014 at 1:57 PM #61874tbinsdParticipant
I flew in from CA to see that game. Had dinner at Two Guys and then drove over to the arena. Not as fun as walking to Reynolds. The next day we drove to Greenville and watched State get embarrassed by EZU in football. A great Wolfpack weekend, though. I still have my ticket.11/19/2014 at 2:18 PM #61875WallyBParticipant
We drove back and forth from Charlotte to watch the game Friday night. The next morning my sister-in-law went into premature labor and delivered my nephew in Rocky Mount, NC. I wish we had spent the night in Raleigh after the game and saved lots of driving back and forth across the state!
Also, his grandparents on the other side were huge ECU fans and had to skip the game to be at the hospital. Must have been bittersweet to have to miss the “game of the century” in Greenville to be there for a grandbaby’s birth!11/19/2014 at 2:34 PM #61877
I had a little hope that we could establish a bit of a home court advantage after that game. Probably 80%ish of what we had a Reynolds. I was way off.
I’m guessing the PNC is ‘50%’ of what Reynolds was for it? I know that is somewhat unquantifiable. Giving it a stab, nonetheless.11/19/2014 at 2:35 PM #61878PackerInRussiaParticipant
Freshman year. My first ever NC State basketball game. Second row. Needless to say, I was there (although I have no memory of getting a poster to commemorate it).11/19/2014 at 4:40 PM #61880Fastback68Participant
Are the axe stroke scars still visible???11/19/2014 at 7:08 PM #61886ClarksaParticipant
If we could ever put together a team or better yet a program like the ones that roamed the hallways at Reynolds, we could have that advantage.11/19/2014 at 7:14 PM #61887pakfanistanParticipant

Concur, whole heartedly.11/19/2014 at 7:51 PM #61888NelsonHall97Participant
I was there. Still have the ticket stubs too. Had two tickets for seats that actually didn’t exist (Sec 314, Row A, Seats 1 & 2). They had to pull up two folding chairs for us and we sat in the walkway up against the glass…crazy.11/19/2014 at 9:43 PM #61891john of spartaParticipant
personally, i was buying dot-com stock.
that and the Pack wiped me out for 12 years.11/19/2014 at 10:16 PM #61893ruffles31Keymaster
I was in Section 337 that night too!11/19/2014 at 10:53 PM #61895blpackParticipant
Was told my wife wasn’t going to give birth that week, it was 6 days later, so I was in Raleigh for the UGa game. Thought we could build a great program again. Still do. Win and we get a home court advantage. Different than Reynolds, but still good.11/20/2014 at 6:31 AM #61897BJD95Keymaster
I was on my couch in Northern Virginia (part of 18 hellish months I would like to forgets), watching. It looked really cool.
I was there for the NIT game in Reynolds a year or two later, the one against Marist or someone of that ilk.11/20/2014 at 9:32 AM #61918MasterParticipant
I was there – lower bowl, east sideline, behind the State bench, top of the 3-point line. I took my father, son and a friend. The intro video made my father and I both well up with tears as we watched with pride the history of our great program play out on the old video board.
Slow start, but a great finish. I thought our program was on the cusp of greatness once again. I moved from Raleigh to Charleston, SC the following year and eventually gave up my lifetime right seats. I still have ticket stub and possibly the program.11/21/2014 at 8:48 AM #62087
It’s one of those little twists in basketball lore that Jim Harrick was the opposing coach for that game in light of his connection to our current staff. Hell, I bet Jeff Dunlap was probably on that staff at Georgia at the time. I haven’t taken the time to check that out, however.
