Operation Our State: NC State Ready For Primetime With The Pack
Oct. 17, 2013
In preparation for the new basketball season, head coach Mark Gottfried is busy getting his team ready and traveling across North Carolina claiming it as OUR STATE. Wolfpack fans can get their first glimpse at the 2013-14 NC State men's basketball team at Friday night's Primetime With The Pack: Operation Our State, presented by PNC.
The event, showcasing Gottfried's third NC State team, begins at PNC Arena at 7 p.m. Admission to Primetime is free and the doors open to the public at 6 p.m. Primetime With The Pack will be streamed live online at GoPack.com All-Access.
The event serves as a thank you to the brave men and women in our nation's military, and military members in attendance will be involved throughout the night. The Marines and soldiers at Fort Bragg will be represented, and the national anthem will be performed by 4Troops, a singing quartet of soldiers who served in Iraq.
A T-shirt toss by Mr. and Mrs. Wuf at the beginning of the night leads into the team's entrance. The night includes on-court promotions, a 3-pointer shooting contest and a 20-minute intrasquad scrimmage. The night will conclude with a team autograph session on the court. An extra bonus for fans will be the new 2013-14 men's basketball schedule cards and posters will be available.
With the North Carolina State Fair beginning this week, fans are encouraged to plan travel and parking accordingly.
