    In all, they looked the best I have seen them in 24 + years. That said....Do not let that go to your head boys! The moment you do you are done. This coach is one of the best I have seen.... Do not let up,..make them improve without destroying innate skill......We will see if you, the team, can get this done. I have faith in your ability, have faith in yourselves, have faith in each other.

    Have fun!

    Amazing what a good coach can do for a program.

  • charlesboyer Nov 16, 2012

    Things keep getting better for State. With Beejay Anya's selection of NC State today, the Wolfpack a Top 5 point guard, Top 3 center and Top 15 power forward for the 2013 class on top of the group of freshman that are already shining their first few games on the court.
