Wolfpack To Wear Valvano Inspired Jersey

RALEIGH, N.C. – To celebrate the spirit and passion of former NC State head coach Jim Valvano, the Wolfpack will wear specially designed jerseys when it faces Connecticut at the 18th annual Jimmy V Classic at Madison Square Garden on Tuesday, Dec. 4.

The red road jersey will feature a net design around the collar and shoulders, reminiscent of Valvano wearing the nets following his "Cardiac Pack's" dramatic run to the 1983 national championship.

On the back of each jersey will be Valvano's famous line of "Don't Ever Give Up," first heard during a pre-game speech on Feb. 21, 1993, prior to NC State's game with Duke at Reynolds Coliseum which he served as the color analyst on the ABC broadcast. Also highlighting the jersey will be the V Foundation's signature V logo.

Limited quantities of jersey replicas will be available at the following outlets: NCSU Bookstore, GoPack Store, Alumni Hall at Crabtree Valley Mall, Pro Sports at Crabtree Valley Mall, Neebo Bookstore at Mission Valley and on Hillsborough, and local Dick's Sporting Goods.

The Wolfpack and Huskies play in the nightcap of the event on ESPN.
