Published

NC State’s Men’s Basketball team moved up three spots to #25 in the NET Rankings after beating Georgia Tech 78-66 last night.

(NCAA)

The Wolfpack are now the 2nd highest ranked ACC team in the NET Rankings.

NC State is currently 2-3 in Quad I games, and they have a chance to even that record on Saturday in a rivalry game in Chapel Hill, who currently is ranked 37th in the NET.

Confused about the NET?

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.

I see ESPN has us going 3-3 in the next 6 games, probably meaning they think we lose the three tough road games at UNC, WF, and UVA.
Our last 4 are going to be brutal. We’ll definitely need our bench. In one week we play UNC (Sunday), WF (Wednesday), and Clemson (Saturday). At least they are all at home. Then we finish over at Cameron. Going to be tough to have much of a winning streak going into post season.

Time to break some streaks… Pack has not won in Dean Dome since 2018.

As long as we take care of business against ND, BC, FSU, CUSE, and GT, we have a great chance of finishing with 14 or 15 wins in the conference. I would be very happy with four seed in the ACC tournament. We have survived a lot of adversity so far. One game at a time….. And can I say, This is whole more fun than last year!

Nice, but of our last 12 regular season games, we’ve still got at least seven of our toughest games. UNC and WF twice. At Duke and UVA, plus Clemson at home.
We’re playing well, but it’s not getting any easier.
GO PACK!!!!
