NC State Wolfpack Basketball 2014-2015 News and Updates
1/21/15 - The fifth ranked team in the Atlantic Coast Conference is the North Carolina State Wolfpack. They sport a 13-6 record, and are coming off a huge win over Florida State. The final score ended up being 72-63, and a huge reason for their success was because of Trevor Lacey. This junior guard ended up scoring 17 points with 5 rebounds. Five of his points were scored with just one minute remaining, which helped his team pull away with the win. They will need him to keep up these types of efforts if the NC State Wolfpack want to go far this season. Up next for them is a game against Miami, which takes place January 22, 2015. Tickets are available now for a low $2.
1/12/15 - No one expected the North Carolina State Wolfpack basketball team to stand a chance against the undefeated Duke Blue Devils when they played on Jan. 11th. The Wolfpack had an excellent early season, but they have been running low on steam lately. Right on the heels of their dismal loss against the number three team, the Virginia Cavaliers, North Carolina State was able to shock the audience and hand the number two team their first loss, all the way from the number 17 position. With a final score of 75-87, this win brings the Wolfpack to 12-5 and hopefully will give them the momentum they need as they enter the final stretch of the season. They play the North Carolina Tar Heels next. Tickets start at $147.
1/6/15 - The North Carolina State Wolfpack have had a successful season thus far. Currently, they are first in the Atlantic Coast Conference, and they are hoping to do big things this year. Tonight, January 7, 2015, NC State took on Virginia, who was the 3rd ranked team in the nation. It was a close game for four quarters, but Virginia was able to pull away with the win. The final score ended up being 61-51. In their hard fought loss, Ralston Turner scored 14 points and had 3 rebounds. He was a driving force for NC State tonight, but it was not enough to score the much-needed upset. Their next game is against Duke, the second ranked team in the nation. Tickets can be bought now for $51.
1/1/15 - The North Carolina State Wolfpack basketball team is still going through some hard times as they come up short against the Cincinnati Bearcats on Tuesday. Earlier this month, the Wolfpack was nearly undefeated, but now they have lost three of their last five games. North Carolina simply had a slow start this game, being behind by 15 at the half. They did much better in the second period, but it was already too late. A final score of 76-60 brought North Carolina to 10-4. While it is disappointing to see so many losses in a short time, the Wolfpack is still one of the higher ranked teams in the league. If they can turn things around soon, they will not have anything to worry about. Their next opportunity is against the Pittsburgh Panthers on the 3rd.
12/25/14 - The North Carolina State Wolfpack basketball team has been on shaky ground lately, suffering all three of their losses this season in the last six games, but they still managed a nice clean win against the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs on Tuesday. They were behind by a whopping 15 points at the end of the first half, but they scored very nearly double the Bulldogs' points in the second half. A final score of 65-73 ended a close game, but still put the Wolfpack securely in the lead. Trevor Lacey led his team with 20 points, however most of them were in the second half. North Carolina State will be playing the Cincinnati Bearcats (8-3) on the 30th and tickets are available for as little as $1.
12/17/14 - North Carolina State Wolfpack basketball looks to rebound after a heartbreaking 55-54 loss last Sunday to the Wofford Terriers. In a mostly even game, the Wolfpack doomed themselves with 11 turnovers, allowing their opponents 14 more scoring opportunities, including junior Justin Gordan’s layup with 1.9 seconds remaining that would ultimately seal the win for the Terriers. Trevor Lacey sank a running three-pointer at the buzzer for NC State, but it was waved off, as officials ruled the ball had not left his hands before time expired. It was a tough way to end the game for the junior guard, who led his team with 18 points and four assists. The ‘Pack will try to get back on track when they host Tennessee on Wednesday, before a weekend showdown with no. 22 West Virginia. Go Wolfpack!

1/9/14 - The North Carolina Wolfpack upset the Fighting Irish to win their first conference game on the road over Notre Dame, pushing them up to No. 7 in the ACC standings.

Now, with a 1-1 record in the AAC, the Wolfpack can improve their standings with their first conference win at home when they take on the #3 Virginia Cavaliers this Saturday. Sophomore wingman T.J.

NC State Wolfpack Basketball 2014-2015 Season
NC State basketball has always been a distinguished force in the ACC
, as the Wolfpack was a founding member of the conference. They have two national championships and ten conference championships under their belt. Mark Gottfreid is in his third year of coaching and has taken the Wolfpack to the NCAA Tournament
each of his years (once to the Sweet 16). The season he has a young group of men eager to prove their skills when they take court to claim their division,
… morea title they have missed since 1979.
This year, the Wolfpack opens at home with a game against Appalachian State on Nov 8. They will open ACC play against the Pittsburgh Panthers at home (Jan 4), followed by a schedule lined with tough opponents: #21 Notre Dame, #4 Duke (Jan 18) and #12 North Carolina (Feb 1). They are pitted against rivals North Carolina Tar Heels in February, last year they split their heated meetings, but things may not be so even this time around, as the Coaches Poll ranks North Carolina No. 11 while NC State did not cut the Top 25.
Gottfried has a team that is currently ranked 9th in the ACC, but has a lot of new players to make up one of the youngest squads in the nation. Five of their six scorers gone: two were lost to the NBA draft (CJ Leslie and Lorenzo Brown), two more graduated, and Rodney Purvis transferred over to UConn. Only two players are returning this year, and both are sophomores: forward Raleigh-native T.J. Warren is the new go-to scorer, who will get support and assists from point guard Tyler Lewis. Both made a good showing during the Wolfpack’s exhibition match against Pembroke, up 96-85. In what some are calling a rebuilding year, Lewis believes the team will “surprise” many when they look to make waves in the NIT. Go Pack!
