Wolfpack Men's Basketball Schedule Announced
Aug. 27, 2014
RALEIGH, NC – Aiming for its fourth NCAA Tournament bid in as many years, the NC State men’s basketball team has announced a 2014-15 schedule featuring 20 home games and 16 contests against teams who played in the 2014 college basketball postseason.
NC State, one of just 25 basketball programs to have played in the last three NCAA Tournaments, will face nine different opponents who played in the 2014 NCAA bracket. The Wolfpack will play 11 games against those nine teams, facing Virginia and North Carolina twice each.
The first four games at home comprise the Global Sports Invitational and conclude with a match-up against South Florida on ESPNU. Richmond and Boise State come to PNC Arena around the Thanksgiving holiday to close the first month.
Nationally-televised games at Purdue and vs. West Virginia in Madison Square Garden mix with six home games in December. During the month, NC State will host three teams – Wofford, Tennessee and Cincinnati – that made the NCAA Tournament last season. West Virginia and Louisiana Tech each played in the NIT last year.
The main portion of the ACC schedule begins Saturday, Jan. 3 at home against Pittsburgh. Duke, North Carolina, Notre Dame and Clemson all come to PNC Arena in January, with the Pack playing at defending ACC champion Virginia in addition to Florida State, Miami and Georgia Tech.
NC State has two home games and four road games on the schedule for February. Virginia and Virginia Tech visit Raleigh around trips to Wake Forest, Louisville, North Carolina and Boston College. The regular season concludes Saturday, March 7 at home against Syracuse in a nationally-televised contest.
Complete TV and game time information will be released as it becomes available.
