"NC State men's basketball coach Herb Sendek had a big smile on his face as he entered the Reynolds Coliseum media room for a mid-summer press conference on Monday morning.
Why hold a basketball press conference in late June? Why not? This is, after all, Tobacco Road, the home of college hoops hysteria. And for some people - especially coaches - basketball is a 12-month a year sport. The season itself is just a segment of what goes on in a major college basketball operation during the course of the calendar year."
