South Florida Prepares To Meet Its Boom...Er, Doom

Finally South Florida can avenge that football game they lost that they forgot they lost.

After winning five of the last seven games and reaching the ACC Tournament semifinals, the NC State men’s basketball team was selected to play in the 2010 NIT. The Pack will be traveling to Tampa, Fla., and face South Florida of the Big East on Tuesday at 8:00 p.m. on ESPNU.

"We are very excited to keep our season going," said head coach Sidney Lowe. "This is a great reward for our team for their play at the end of the season. We have been playing some of our best basketball of the season, and we look forward to continuing to work hard and keep our season alive."

State will take on the Bulls on Tuesday in front of tens of people.  Remember the name Dominique Jones.  You are going to hear it a lot.

Full preview on the way.  Some quick notes:

-- The Bulls are very one-dimensional.  They don't take a lot of threes and they rank 338th in 3FG%.  Their primary outside shooters are hitting 32.1% and 28.4%, respectively, from beyond the arc.

-- They have no bench.

-- They don't force turnovers and their defensive rebounding is not good.  On the whole, this is not a good defensive ball club.

-- I don't know about you guys, but I'm excited about making the NIT.  We get more booms.
