I thought my Google news feed was playing a trick on me, but no, it appears New Orleans is once again on the basketball schedule. The Privateers will play the Wolfpack at the RBC Center on November 29th.
NC State opened the '08-'09 season with a relatively painless win in New Orleans, avenging its awful last-second loss to the Privateers the year prior. The '09 UNO team eventually proved to be one of the worst offensive ball clubs in the country, and looking at the production from the guys coming back, it does not appear that's likely to change. And they'll be without both of their go-to guys from last season and although both posted fairly modest numbers, they were the team's most efficient scorers.
