(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 […]
NC State currently sits at #50 in the RPI having played the 4th toughest schedule in America. State has won seven games against the Top 100 and 3 games against the Top 50. State’s only loss against a team ranked outside the Top 100 was on the road at Wake Forest.
State played its way back onto the bubble with a big 74-65 must-win at 9th-ranked Louisville today. Barber led all scorers with 21, Lacey added 14 and Anya had three blocks. This was the type of game State had struggled to finish against Notre Dame and Virginia. State has a week to prepare for Virginia […]
Comrade 76 and Lenin Cat are out serving the proletariat, so it’s up to me to pseudo-preview today’s beating. The Cards are somewhat challenged offensively, at least based on what I saw last weekend in Hooville (a game that also lacked the injured Justin Anderson, for the most part). So it surprised me to see […]
A few house cleaning items as we head to Louisville this weekend where Dave Doeren and NC State’s eleven game conference losing streak is starting to be the main topic of NC State football. First, in case you did not know, Saturday’s game at Louisville will be televised exactly as last Saturday’s game against Boston […]
Dave Doeren has suspended seven players for the Louisville game Saturday, as discipline for their participation in the (apparently) increasingly popular game of BB guns sweeping college football recently. Suspended are two starters (Alston, Fernandez) and five others (Justin Jones, Josh Jones, McKever, Ramos and Stevens). NC State’s depth chart for the Louisville game has […]
Per Pat Forde at Yahoo!, Mike & Mike on ESPN and WRAL, et al, the ACC has approved the addition of Louisville for 2014. Others lobbied, but the consensus seems to be that the ACC could always add UConn and Cincinnati later. There are now more former Big East members (6) than charter members (5) […]
Hey, look at the symmetry! On this same splendid Fall Sunday, the Wolfpack has a great “house money” basketball game at the Stanford Cardinal, and will almost certainly be invited to play football against the Louisville Cardinals in Charlotte’s Belk Bowl. Let us hope that a good showing against the singular serves as a precursor […]
