NC State is lucky enough to have two of the most heralded men’s basketball teams in NCAA history: the criminally underrated 1974 team, known for their dominance and breaking up John Wooden’s string of championship teams at UCLA, and the 1983 team who defied the odds and won at the last second on a shot that embodied how improbable its season was. That team, and that shot, gets brought up every March when the NCAA Tournament is played, but I can’t help but feel that maybe it gets brought up a little too much.

The NC State men’s basketball team had an all-around rocky season, but went out on a high note by taking care of business against the Pittsburgh Panthers in the first round of the ACC Tournament. But what would have happened from there remains a mystery, as the remainder of the ACC Tournament, and the NCAA Tournament, was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
