(FREE CONTENT) As the big game against the Tar Heels looms, we here at Wolfpack Hoops would like to introduce you to the greatest Carolina Killers in NC State Basketball History.
#1 on our list is CC Harrison
In 1998 C.C. Harrison caused Tar Heel Blue Sweater Vests to unravel as he drained 8 Three Pointers in the Dean Dome to lead the Pack to an 86-72 victory.
The #2 Carolina killer is Tom Gugliotta. Googs tied CC for the most Three Point Field Goals made in a game against UNC as he shredded 8 Three’s on Carolina in a 99-88 victory in Raleigh in 1992. He also went on to finish that game with 36 points, which happens to also be the most points scored by a player in a game against the Tar Heels. Both of these Pack Legends are two of the best 3-Point shooters in NC State History. Goog’s is sixth on the list and C.C. is tenth (3-Point FG’s Made).
Our # 3 Ram slayer is Ronnie Shavlik, who happens to be NC State’s All-Time leading rebounder. He gained the record for the most rebounds against the Tar Heels, when he sucked down 23 boards in a 79-73 victory in 1956.
Killer #4 is current Portland Trailblazers head coach Nate McMillan. His game against UNC in 1985 was a profitable endeavor as he collected 13 dimes in Reynolds, which was a record against the Heels as well. Nate is seventh on the All-Time Assists list.
Even though this isn’t a highlight reel from that particular game, we thought you might enjoy seeing Coach Nate pin the Heels to the backboard in a game in Reynolds in 1986.
.Finally, Carolina Killer #5 is none other than Ishua Benjamin. In the same game that C.C. Harrison had 8 Treys, Ish became a con artist by committing a mass thievery: a record 7 steals against the Heels. Ishua made quite a habit of doing this in his career as he sits at fourth on the All-Time Steals list.
