NC State doesn’t get much time to enjoy its pretty awesome win over Arizona—the Wolfpack will be back in action on Thursday at 3 p.m. ET against Northern Iowa, which defeated SMU to advance. This Battle 4 Atlantis semifinal game will be televised by ESPN2 at 3 p.m. ET (actual TV!)
The winner of the State-UNI game advances to the Battle 4 Atlantis championship game, where it will play either Villanova or Tennessee. The Wolfpack is entirely in the gravy zone at this point, so whatever it manages to steal from here on is a freebie. If State can get out of this week with a couple wins, that’s a big deal.
Arizona’s already in State’s back pocket, and a win Thursday gives State a shot at Villanova on Friday—potentially. NC State’s non-conference schedule might be trash, but a strong couple days here can erase a whole lot of it.
Plus, this shit is just fun.
