Pack fans will finally get their chance to to see the highly touted Dennis Smith and the rest of the revamped NC State basketball team tomorrow. Though not an official game, the Wolfpack will open up against Lynn University at the PNC Arena on Thursday in an exhibition match.
Though the game doesn’t actually matter, it will be exciting to see the Pack go up against real competition. Don’t forgot, this is basically a brand new team, as possibly 4 of the 5 starters could be different from last year. The fans will also get a glimpse of Omer Yurtseven, as he is eligible to play in the exhibition games, before he starts his 9 game suspension. Yurtseven should see a good portion of minutes as well since he will be forced to miss a large portion of time to get adjusted to the college game before ACC play.
Who Is Lynn University?
Lynn University in an NCAA Divsion II team in the Sunshine State Conference. They finished 13-15 overall and 6-10 in the conference last year. Much like the Wolfpack, the Fighting Knights will be putting pretty much a new team out on the court as 4 of their 5 starters and leading scorers are now graduated. Their lone starter returning, Allen Biez, averaged 5.8 points per game. Their leading returning scorer is Sophomore Jamal Palmer who average 8.7 point last year as a freshman.
