Pack Hosts Indiana in ACC/Big Ten Challenge

NC State will play host to Indiana on Wednesday, November 30 as a part of the 13th annual Big Ten/ACC Challenge. ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU and will combine to carry all 12 games of the event, the ACC Office announced this afternoon.

"This definitely will be a challenge for us because I believe this will be Tom Crean's best team at IU," said first-year State head coach Mark Gottfried. "This game fits into our philosophy to schedule with the NCAA tourney in mind. We have a long way to go but we are excited about the opportunity."

The Wolfpack has won four of its five home games in the Big Ten/ACC Challenge and has posted a 5-6 mark overall in the event. The ACC won the first 10 Challenges, while The Big Ten has won each of the last two seasons by a 6-5 margin both times.

NC State will face Indiana for only the third time in school history. In the two previous matchups, Indiana won in Raleigh in 1968 (101-97) and in Bloomington in 1969 (77-62).
