This Week in Sports: Nov. 14-20

With wrestling starting its season and basketball just starting, there are plenty of opportunities to check out the early games of these sports. There is also primetime football for the second week in a row.

Thursday, Nov. 14

7:00 p.m. Women’s basketball vs. Lamar (Reynolds Coliseum)

The No. 14 ranked women’s basketball team will be facing Lamar University at Reynolds Coliseum. The Pack won its previous game against UNCW 80-40 and is an immensely exciting team to watch, so home games for the Pack are can’t-miss affairs.

Friday, Nov. 15

7:00 p.m. Women’s soccer vs. Navy, NCAA Championship first round (Dail Soccer Field)

For the third year in a row, the NC State women’s soccer team will host a first-round match in the NCAA Championship. Navy, champions of the Patriot League, are a solid team that managed to put together a record of 16-2-3 this season and should match up well with the Wolfpack.

7:00 p.m. Wrestling vs. Old Dominion (Reynolds Coliseum)

The wrestling team will be going against Old Dominion for the first matchup in Raleigh. This match comes before the Wolfpack Duals over the weekend.

Saturday, Nov. 16

12:00 p.m. Wrestling vs. Belmont Abbey (Carmichael Gym)

1:30 p.m. Wrestling vs. UNC-Pembroke (Carmichael Gym)

3:00 p.m. Wrestling vs. Reinhardt (Carmichael Gym)

These three matches are all a part of the Wolfpack Duals event. UNC-Pembroke and Reinhardt are returning after both losing to the Pack in last year's Duals.

12:00 p.m. Men’s basketball vs. St. Francis Brooklyn (Reynolds Coliseum)

The men’s basketball team (1-1) will be facing the Terriers (1-1) in Reynolds. This is the first game of the year the men’s basketball team will play in Reynolds. The Pack is coming off an 84-65 win over Detroit Mercy this past Sunday.

7:30 p.m. Football vs. Louisville (Carter-Finley Stadium)

The NC State football team (4-5) will take on Louisville (5-4), who is fourth in the ACC Atlantic. The Pack has been looking rough with its most recent loss to the undefeated Clemson Tigers. NC State is 4-1 at home, but only 1-4 in conference, with the one win coming against Syracuse. Louisville is also coming off 52-27 loss against Miami.

Tuesday, Nov. 19

10:30 a.m. Women’s basketball vs. Maine (Reynolds Coliseum)

The Women’s basketball team will take on Maine University in Reynolds for the first basketball game of the day. This is also Education Day. If you do not have a class at this time, maybe watch some basketball.

7:00 p.m. Men’s basketball vs. Alcorn State (Reynolds Coliseum)

The NC State men’s basketball will have another game in Reynolds Tuesday. This is the second basketball game on this day, as the women’s one will be earlier. Reynolds always creates a great atmosphere for basketball, so both this and the earlier women’s game are great events to go to during the week.
