Sir Walter Raleigh has hoops fever
Mar 22, 2012
Sir Walter Raleigh has March basketball fever and a true rooting interest.
Supporting the NC State men's basketball team and their run to the Sweet 16, the statue in front of the Raleigh Convention Center dons a red Wolfpack jersey.
Also supporting the sports teams in the city that bears his name, the statue is holding a flag for Shaw University. The Bears women's team will play in the NCAA Division II championship game Friday against Ashland.

NC State has waited a long time for this to happen again. State has worked hard and the coaches did just about everything possible to make it happen. My hat is off to a team that made a dramatic transformation in one year. Sorry that the Hokies can't seem to do this. I give credit when it's due. State is rolling right now.
