Pack to Host NIT Game in Reynolds

Following Tuesday night's win at Drexel, the NC State men's basketball team will continue its quest for the NIT Championship at home on Friday night.

Sidney Lowe and company will play host to Marist in Reynolds Coliseum in a game that tips off at 9:30 p.m. and will be broadcast on ESPNU.

The sixth-seeded Wolfpack (19-15) upset third-seed Drexel on Tuesday, while seventh-seeded Marist (25-8) won at second-seed Oklahoma State. The winner of the game will advance to play the winner of the West Virginia-UMass game on the road next week.

All seating for the game is general admission and tickets can be purchased for $20. Wolfpack Club members can purchase tickets from 2 p.m. today until the game is sold out. Any tickets not purchased by Wolfpack Club members by noon on Thursday will go on sale to the general public. Because of high call volume, fans are encouraged to go here to purchase them on line, but the numbers to the ticket office are 919/865-1510 or 1-800-310-PACK.

Fans purchasing tickets will be able to pick them up on Friday between noon and 6:30 p.m. at the Vaughn Towers box office at Carter-Finley Stadium. Any tickets not picked up during that time will be at the Reynolds will-call window on Friday evening.

NC State students can purchase tickets for $5 at the Reynolds Coliseum Box office Thursday from 10 a.m.-2 p.m.


Tonight, Wolfpack head coach Sidney Lowe returns to the airwaves from 8-9 p.m. on his weekly radio show heard throughout the state on the Wolfpack Sports Network.

The show will originate from the food court at Crabtree Valley Mall and all fans are invited to attend!
