NORTH CAROLINA STATE WOLFPACK RUMORS & GOSSIP
RALEIGH, N.C. T.J. Warren will to have to carry the scoring load for North Carolina State to be competitive this season.
Fortunately for the Wolfpack, Warren is an elite scorer. Unfortunately, though, hes gotten off to some slow starts in the last few games; and at times, his team has struggled early as a result.
Even after posting a pair of 30-point efforts in his last two games...
North Carolina State went from making an unexpected run to the NCAA tournament's round of 16 in coach Mark Gottfried's first year to falling far short of expectations as Atlantic Coast Conference favorite the next.
The core of those teams is gone now, leaving Gottfried to teach an inexperienced group he hopes will grow up quickly.
''This is going to be a completely...

Yeah, this is exactly how it sounds. North Carolina State basketball coach Mark Gottfried literally jumped out of an airplane to help get Wolfpack fans excited about Midnight Madness. The spectacles surrounding Midnight Madness around the country just keep getting bigger. Via Eye on College Basketball
Where to begin? At the beginning, I suppose, but at which beginning? Let’s start with UNC small forward PJ Hairston. Hairston was arrested last month on a drug possession charge. Usually, a drug possession arrest for a college student isn’t earth-shattering stuff, but the circumstances surrounding Hairston’s arrest make for a good mystery, and the internet loves a good mystery...
RALEIGH, N.C. The C.J. Leslie era is over at North Carolina State, although it's hard to pinpoint when it began.
Leslie played in 99 games for the Wolfpack, but only approached his talent base on a few occasions. When Leslie was at his best, in flashes, it was quite breathtaking.
At 6-foot-9 and 200 pounds, the long-armed and supremely athletic Leslie should have been a rebounding...

LOWEST OF THE LOWE
Former NC State head basketball coach Sidney Lowe has been arrested for failing to pay taxes in 2009, 2010 and 2011 ... the final three years of his time with the Wolfpack.
Ahhhh social media. Gotta love it. Unless you don't. When Thomas De Thaey left the NC State program in November he was frustrated. He tweeted about lack of playing time, but cited his father's health as the reason for his departure. He went back to Belgium to pursue a professional career. Apparently though, he wasn't quite done. That's what happens when you...

NC State wore special uniforms during Tuesday’s game against UConn at the Jimmy V Classic that paid tribute to former Wolfpack head coach Jim Valvano. The red jerseys were designed with nets around the collar and shoulders, meant to represent the way Valvano wore the winning net around his neck after his 1983 Wolfpack won the national championship by defeating Houston’s Phi Slama...
DON'T EVER GIVE UP
Tweet Jim Valvano spent eighteen seasons as college basketball head coach (Bucknell, Iona, North Carolina State) with the best years coming during a ten-year span in charge of the NC State, where he complied a record of 209-112 and led the ACC school to the national championship in 1983. Next Tuesday NC State [...]
Just who is Karl Hess? You probably better know him as the referee that threw North Carolina State alums Tom Gugliotta and Chris Corchiani out of a game.
NC State fans had a big problem with this. They basically gave the ACC offices a really hard time, as they felt that Hess stepped out-of-bounds, so to speak. The conference chose to reprimand Hess, publicly and remove him from his...

Oh yeah, he hasn’t played for NC State since 1992.
Googs and another NC State alum, Chris Corchiani, were ejected today by referee Karl Hess during NC State’s loss to Florida State. What did the former Wolfpack basketball players say? No one knows for sure at the moment, but it is a pretty safe bet that the magic word was involved.
