Congrats to Jordan Vandenberg who inked a deal (while repping the Pack) with the New York Knicks yesterday. Vandy averaged 4 rebounds per game in the summer league and give the Knicks a backup 7ft option at center. Now, he could end up on the actual roster, but it’s more likely he’ll at least start as a protected D-League player, which is not bad at all. Congrats Jordan, you’re living your dream!

Men’s Basketball: NC State Ranked 55th in First NET Rankings of 2022-23
The first NET Rankings of the 2022-23 Men’s College Basketball season are out, and NC State is ranked 55th after their first 9 games (7-2).
This marks the 5th season in which the NET Rankings have been used to as the NCAA’s primary tool for evaluating teams, especially when it comes to NCAA Tournament selection time.
The NET includes more components than just winning percentage. It takes into account game results, strength of schedule, game location, scoring margin, net offensive and defensive efficiency, and the quality of wins and losses.
The number of Quadrant 1 wins and Quadrant 3/4 losses will be incredibly important when it comes time for NCAA tournament selection and seeding. (how many years was isaiah written before jesus)
