A trip, a win, a program-changing moment for NC State

The reverberations from NC State's win over Arizona on Wednesday will linger longer than they did Thursday morning, longer than Thursday's disappointing loss to Northern Iowa, longer than the Wolfpack's 4th-place finish at the Battle 4 Atlantis after Friday's 67-58 loss to Tennessee.

Names and faces change, but essential NC Stateness does not

Following up an upset of the No. 2 team in the country with a loss to a team that opened its season by losing by 17 at North Carolina is the kind of thing that NC State basketball teams have done since time immemorial. A day after the Wolfpack basketball's stirring win over Arizona, everything was back to normal with a 64-60 loss to Northern Iowa.

Emeka Emezie apologizes, but this N.C. State loss was bigger than any one player

The reality, the truth of the matter, couldn’t be more different. Emezie’s fumble at the goal line with a chance to score the go-ahead touchdown is the play everyone will remember, will make him the target of the cruel bile of those phony, soulless fans who project their own self-loathing on the players who they think fail them – and they were out there Saturday night, oozing around the internet, despite a plethora of extraordinarily kind responses to Emezie’s tweet – but there was plenty of blame to go around. N.C. State didn’t lose because Emezie had the ball knocked out of his hands.

Jeff Capel back on bench as Duke mourns his father

Jeff Capel the elder wasn't part of Duke's coaching staff. He was just a presence, a part of the family, a basketball coach comfortable among other coaches. He was the father of a former player, the father of an assistant coach, a North Carolina basketball icon who was at home around any team, especially his son's.
