It was announced this week that Chris Corchiani Jr, the son of the “Fire” in “Fire and Ice”, will walk on at NC State next year. Corchiani Jr. relayed his decision via Twitter: State fans are looking forward to another Corchiani wearing the red and white of NC State. Welcome to the Pack, Chris!
NC State takes the floor a few minutes after noon today for a huge NCAA Tournament match-up against the Georgetown Hoyas today.
