NC State is playing in the NCAA tournament—we know that much at this point and nothing else since the geniuses at CBS/Turner decided to shake up the selection show format and announce all of the field without actually showing the bracket.
Literally that is all we know. NC State is in the NCAA tournament. What seed, what opponent? Theoretically we will learn this information at some point this evening.
Elsewhere on the bubble, both Syracuse (!) and Florida State got in, while Louisville will be sitting at home (heh). But nevermind that or this stupid and confusing format change by the powers that be: NC State is in the tourney, we got ourselves another game to prepare for this week, and Kevin Keatts is a winner.
NC State ended a two-year tournament drought this season, and as it turned out, that soft non-conference schedule didn’t end up mattering.
