This week in sports: Feb. 20-26

Friday, Feb. 21

3 p.m. Baseball vs. Tennessee Tech (Doak Field)

The NC State baseball team has gotten off to a dominant start this season. The Pack has won all four games it has played this season, and by big margins. It has outscored its opponents 30-9 and will look to continue its dominant start in this upcoming three-game home series against Tennessee Tech.

3 p.m. Softball vs. Bucknell (Dail Softball Stadium)

The Pack has won three of its last four games and is looking to continue that streak in this doubleheader Friday. The Wolfpack’s recent streak has been aided by senior outfielder Tatyana Forbes, who leads the team in batting average at .548.

7 p.m. Gymnastics vs. William & Mary/Centenary (Reynolds Coliseum)

The Wolfpack boasts a 5-4 record this season, but the team has been on a tear recently, winning five of its last six meets, with the lone loss coming against New Hampshire in a tri-meet. In that same tri-meet, the Pack downed rival North Carolina and posted its highest floor score of the season at 49.400.

2 p.m. Baseball vs. Tennessee Tech (Doak Field)

3 p.m. Softball vs. Indiana (Dail Softball Stadium)

4 p.m. Men’s basketball vs. No. 8 Florida State (PNC Arena)

After beating No. 6 Duke on Wednesday, the Pack will have to face No. 8 Florida State Saturday. The Seminoles have been a dominant team all season, with an overall record of 22-4, and if NC State can pull off this major upset, it will significantly increase its chances of making the NCAA Tournament.

7 p.m. No. 10 Women’s basketball vs. Duke (Reynolds Coliseum)

The NC State women's basketball team has dropped to second in the ACC after back-to-back losses against No. 5 Louisville and unranked Georgia Tech. The Pack is still only one game behind Louisville though, and it needs a win against Duke Monday night to have any chance at taking back first place.
