  • Pack Insider: NC State Offers JUCO SG Sardaar Calhoun

  • Backing The Pack: The Gott man got got, man: An NCAA Notice of Allegations FAQ

    NC State received a Notice of Allegations from the NCAA on Tuesday this week, which the school made public on Wednesday. The major violations all relate to the recruitment of former five-star point guard Dennis Smith Jr., who spent one fart of a season in Raleigh before heading to the NBA.

    Let's break this down, FAQ-style.

    What is a Notice of Allegations?

    An extremely judgmental document pieced together by various mediocre bean-counters at the NCAA alerting you to certain violations of the labyrinthine tax code otherwise known as the NCAA rule book. It lets you know you did some Bad Stuff, though nothing that would qualify as Bad Stuff in the real world.

  • Backing The Pack: NC State Board of Trustees approves sale of alcohol at athletic events

    Not that there was any doubt in the matter, but NC State's Board of Trustees voted on Wednesday to all for the sales of beer and wine at Wolfpack sporting events. Joe Giglio has the news.

    For this to be possible, the state government first had to pass a new law to make alcohol sales legal at UNC-system schools. That happened in June, leaving alcohol sales up to the individual institutions.

    Soon enough you'll be able to enjoy a cold one at Carter-Finley Stadium and PNC Arena. As I've discussed previously, the logistics for Wolfpack basketball games are far simpler, since infrastructure for facility-wide alcohol sales has always existed--just only used by the Carolina Hurricanes 'til now.

  • Pack Insider: ACCSports Projects NC State Men's Basketball to Finish 7th in 2019-20

    ACCSports.com has released their early projections for the 2019-20 ACC Men's Basketball season, and they think that NC State will finish 7th in the conference.

    Outside of Jordan Nwora's decision to return to Louisville, there's likely no ACC team that got a bigger boost from a draft decision than NC State: Markell Johnson will back for his senior season.

    Johnson's rise as a junior -- from pass-first slasher to pick-and-roll engine -- was a massive development for Kevin Keatts and the Wolfpack. It's also why Johnson returns to Raleigh as one of the most important players in the league.

  • Pack Insider: NC State Men's Basketball Ranks 6th in SI's ACC Summer Power Rankings

    Sports Illustrated released their ACC Summer Power Rankings for the upcoming Men's Basketball season, and their early projection is that NC State will be the 6th best team in the conference.

    Virginia Tech
    Syracuse

    Here's what SI had to say about the Wolfpack:

    6. NC State: With former signee Jalen Lecque jumping straight to the NBA, the Wolfpack bring in an underwhelming recruiting class but return most of last year's rotation outside of leading scorer Torin Dorn.

  • Pack Insider: NC State is a #7 Seed in Lunardi's Summer Bracketology Edition

    Point Guard Jalen Lecque, who was an NC State 2019 signee that opted for the NBA Draft instead of attending school in Raleigh in the Fall, didn't hear his name called last night in the 2019 NBA Draft.

    Despite going undrafted, the Phoenix Suns signed the athletic phenom to a 4-year Undrafted Free Agent Contract, with 2 years guaranteed.

    Lecque was a 4-Star prospect out of Brewster Academy, ranked 40th nationally by Rivals and 247.

    The high flyer committed to NC State back on October 2nd, submitted his paperwork for NBA eligibility on April 2nd, and fully declared for the Draft on May 29th.

  • Backing The Pack: NC State is No. 6 in Sports Illustrated's preseason ACC basketball power rankings

    Sometimes I see positive takes on the basketball team from impartial sources and feel like I'm missing something, which may just be a sign that I'm conditioned to extremely gun-shy toward basketball optimism. I blame the basketball results from this entire century.

    But it is decidedly not crazy to believe that NC State could finish in the top six of the ACC this upcoming season, as the very accurate and true people at Sports Illustrated explain in their preseason conference power rankings. When I sit back and actually think about it, that seems like a fine opinion.

  • Pack Insider: NC State Signee Blake Walston Signs Contract with D-Backs

    2019 NC State Signee Blake Walston (6'4''/172) was drafted by the Arizona Diamondbacks with the 26th overall pick tonight in the 1st round back on June 3rd.

    There was some speculation on whether or not he would sign with the D-Backs, because he wouldn't come cheap.

    Many scouts believe that in three years, he could be one of the top picks in the draft.

    We need to speculate no longer.

    Walston will bypass college baseball at NC State, and begin his professional baseball career.

    Walston's signing bonus will net him $2.45 million of guaranteed money.

  • Backing The Pack: NC State basketball season review: Markell Johnson edition

    Previously on Wolfpack hoops review:

    Markell Johnson has made considerable strides on the court during every year of his college career. While he was more promise than anything as a freshman, he began to show it consistently as a sophomore, as he improved his shooting percentage dramatically while becoming one of the best facilitators in the country.

    He built on those breakthroughs as a junior, putting together his best season at NC State as he evolved into a scary matchup problem for opponents.

    Markell was more efficient across the board despite significantly upping his offensive workload, which is the sign of a big-time talent coming into his own.

  • Nevada Sage Brush: Nevada's Cody Martin selected in 2019 NBA Draft

    SHARE ON:

    Nevada Wolf Pack guard/forward Cody Martin is headed back to his home state.

    A Mocksville, N.C. native, Martin was drafted 36th overall in the second round by the Charlotte Hornets on Thursday in the 2019 NBA Draft.

    He is the highest NBA pick from Nevada since Luke Babbitt was picked 16th overall by the Minnesota Timberwolves in 2010. Armon Johnson went 34th to the Portland Trailblazers that same year.

    Martin, 23, stuffed the stat sheet last season. He averaged 12.1 points on 50.5 percent shooting with 4.9 assists, 4.5 rebounds and 1.

  • Backing The Pack: NC State's non-conference basketball schedule includes road trip to UNC-Greenboro

    Heading into the 2019-20 basketball season, we knew that NC State would be playing Auburn (return trip for the home-and-home agreement) and a team from the Big Ten (which turned out to be Wisconsin). More recently we've learned that State will play Memphis on a neutral floor, and as Joe Giglio reports here, State will play at UNCG.

    The Wolfpack is playing at UNCG because the ACC Tournament is in Greensboro this year--the theory being that getting some experience in that gym with those rims might be beneficial come March. I'm dubious on that but won't dismiss the idea entirely.
