Top 25 Overall Records: 2017-2022

2016-17: NCAA Second Round
2017-18: NCAA Sweet Sixteen

2019-20: 2nd in ACC, No Tournament (Covid)
2020-21: 2nd in ACC, NCAA Sweet Sixteen
2021-22: ACC Champ, NCAA Elite Eight
They’ve lost a lot of talent for 2022-23, but the roster is still stacked, and with Jada Boyd returning and Diamond Johnson set to take over PG duties full time, on top of Jakia Brown-Turner still here, we’re guessing NC State opens up the season as one of the top schools in the conference once again.
