NC State earns a No. 2 seed in NIT, hosts Hofstra in first round

NCAA Basketball: Hofstra at Villanova Dennis Schneidler-USA TODAY Sports

NC State has a date with Hofstra in the NIT on Tuesday, so let’s get hyped, everybody! Er, well, yeah so this ain’t super exciting at this juncture. On the bright side, the game will have to be played at Reynolds Coliseum since the Hurricanes have a home game that night.

The winner of NCSU-Hofstra will advance to play the winner of No. 3 Georgetown vs. No. 6 Harvard. Who knew we might see Omer Yurtseven back in Raleigh? I mean, sitting on the bench in street clothes, but still. As the two seed, NC State will host the second round game if it advances.

NC State’s NIT region/bracket/quadrant/whatever they call it:

1) UNC-Greensboro
2) Campbell

4) Davidson
5) Lipscomb

3) Georgetown
6) Harvard

2) NC State
7) Hofstra

Indiana, Alabama, and TCU are the other one-seeds in the NIT. Clemson, Texas, and Creighton the other twos.

We might as well go win the whole dumb thing, I guess.

State-Hofstra will be on ESPN2.
