On a more positive basketball note, the NC State women’s team is going to be playing in the NCAAs this year, the only question is where the Wolfpack gets seeded. Each school that earns a top-4 seed gets to host the first weekend of games, and while State has been right on that line, the Pack most likely will have to hit the road.
ESPN bracketologist Charlie Creme has the Pack slotted in as a No. 5 seed in the Stockton Regional opening against No. 12 Western Illinois. A win in the opener would likely see NC State face host UCLA in the second round.
But that fate is hardly set in stone—the only opinion that matters is the selection committee’s. At the very least let’s hope that State does not get sent all the way out to the dang west coast.
ESPN will air the NCAA women’s tournament selection show Monday night at 7 p.m. ET. NC State is also hosting a watch party at Reynolds this evening.
