Rock Bottom

NC State lost to the lowly Virginia Cavaliers last night, virtually eliminating the Wolfpack from consideration for the NCAA tournament. I knew State was overrated when they were ranked in the top ten, but I did not expect their drop to be so dramatic and fast.

By losing at home to the worst team in the league, State brought a new scenario into play. They could easily lose enough games to finish with a losing overall record, which would eliminate their eligibility for the NIT.

The last seven games will be a test of character for the Wolfpack players. Will they scrape up what is left of their pride into a thimble and play hard, or will they phone it in?
