NC State Opens The Charleston Classic Against East Carolina

While there remains no official word from tournament organizers about the last two teams, much less a bracket, ECU released its basketball schedule today, and it includes these tidbits:

1.) ECU gets the Pack in the first round.
2.) The Pirates play either Charlotte or George Mason in game two.

Which means the bracket looks something like this (incidentally, nailed by this guy last night):

Georgetown vs. USC Upstate
Wofford vs. Coastal Carolina
Charlotte vs. George Mason
NC State vs. East Carolina (11/18, 6 PM)

For strength of schedule purposes, we need Charlotte to beat Mason. (Assuming we take care of the Pirates, of course.)  Charlotte and Georgetown would be an excellent weekend for the resume.
