NC State coach Wes Moore not pleased with Wolfpack Women’s NCAA tournament seed

Yeah, he’s got good reason to be not pleased about this. NC State’s women’s basketball team is in the NCAA tournament, but the Wolfpack is going to have to travel to Texas as the No. 6 seed in a pod hosted by No. 3 Texas. There’s an argument you could make for State getting a top-four seed in a region, which would have allowed State to host during the first weekend. Wolfpack...

BTP The Podcast Vol. 27: Tourney time edition (the women’s team was badly disrespected)

Seriously, the women’s tournament selection committee did poorly. The Wolfpack Women earned a No. 6 seed in the NCAAs on Monday night, which is probably a seed line or two below what they have actually earned. This is the second year in a row the Pack’s been undervalued, but last year that meant missing the field entirely—at least this time around they have something to say...

NC State women’s team shown little respect by NCAA tournament committee, given No. 6 seed

Well at least they got in this time, I guess. NC State is the No. 6 seed in the Lexington Region and will face No. 11 Auburn on Friday. Here’s the good news: not only did the Wolfpack Women avoid UConn’s region, they avoided UConn’s side of the bracket. Avoiding UConn for as long as possible is always preferred. Now for the bad: State has to travel to Austin, Texas, where...

It’s selection time for the ladies. On a more positive basketball note, the NC State women’s team is going to be playing in the NCAAs this year, the only question is where the Wolfpack gets seeded. Each school that earns a top-4 seed gets to host the first weekend of games, and while State has been right on that line, the Pack most likely will have to hit the road. ESPN bracketologist...
