on

Tonight NC State’s women’s basketball team (26-8) will face off against Mississippi St. (34-1) in the Sweet 16 at 7pm (ET) on ESPN. The Wolfpack are a #4 seed, and the Bulldogs are the #1 seed.

This is NC State’s 12th trip to the Sweet 16. Keep in mind, this Wolfpack squad was picked to finish 10th in the ACC this season.

Mississippi St. is ranked 4th in the polls, and has their scoring margin is +26.5. The Wolfpack, ranked 17th, have a tough test ahead of them, but they played Louisville twice this year, and the Cardinals were ranked in the Top-5 on both occasions. Even though NC State lost both contests, both losses were by less than 10 points.

Here’s a detailed look at the Wolfpack and the Bulldogs from GoPack:

If NC State can pull off a major upset tonight, it will mark the Wolfpack’s first trip to the Elite 8 since 1998. It would also be only the 5th time in school history that a team won at least 27 games in a single season.

The winner of tonight’s contest will play the winner of Texas and UCLA.

NC State’s Nonwoven Institute is currently using two of it’s production lines to produce materials for the creation of face masks for the use of medical workers as they fight Covid-19.

According to Behnam Pourdeyhimi, executive director of NWI, Wilson College of Textiles associate dean for industry research and extension and William A. Klopman Distinguished Professor, the materials being made can create a face mask that can be cleaned and reused.

“Because of the COVID-19 crisis, we took the spunbond technology and created a new generation of unique filters that have excellent filtering capability and can potentially be reused after cleaning with peroxide, or potentially alcohol solution,” Pourdeyhimi said. “Because these materials are strong, unlike classical meltblown filters, they can also be cut and sewn by traditional techniques.” (NCSU)

Currently, NC State is roughly able to create material for roughly 500,000 surgical face masks per day.

Within the next month when new machinery arrives, NC State will be able to create the actual face masks on their Centennial Campus, to provide to local medical workers.
