In this fascinating official history of the first 100 years of the North Carolina State University men's basketball program, Tim Peeler and Roger Winstead recount the traditions and innovations that have shaped Wolfpack basketball as well as the history and customs of college basketball itself. In a nation once dominated by football and baseball, visionary coaches from NC State--Gus Tebell, Everett Case, Norm Sloan, and Jim Valvano--helped push basketball to the forefront of the national imagination, igniting a passion and excitement for the game that made the Atlantic Coast Conference the center of the college sports universe. This book, with 230 captivating photographs, showcases the many college basketball traditions made famous at NC State, including cutting down thenets, spotlighting players during introductions, and even the alley oop. All the legendary players and unique personalities that have passed through the doors of Thompson Gymnasium, Reynolds Coliseum, and the RBC Center are here, from Ronnie Shavlik and David Thompson to Sidney Lowe and Julius Hodge. With two national championships, 17 conference championships, and countless memorable moments, NC State Basketball remains one of college basketball's proudest programs. Wolfpack fans and college basketball lovers alike will find much to celebrate in this enthralling history.
