NC State Wolfpack Basketball Tickets
See the Wolfpack take on ACC opponents with your NC State basketball tickets from TicketSmarter. The Wolfpack first took the court against Wake Forest in 1911. Since then, they’ve been one of the winningest programs among NCAA Division I men’s college basketball teams. Everett Case, Norm Sloan, and Jim Valvano are some of the most successful coaches in NC State history.
The case took over the Wolfpack in 1946. His only prior head coaching experience had been a successful 23-year high school coaching career. Immediately before his tenure at NC State, Case was an assistant coach for two seasons at the University of Southern California. In his first season at NC State, Case led the Wolfpack to a 48-46 overtime victory against the Tar Heels in Chapel Hill. This began a streak of 15 straight wins against North Carolina. The season ended with North Carolina State’s first Southern Conference championship in 18 years. He would go on to lead the Wolfpack to six consecutive SoCon championships.
NC State basketball tickets for ACC contests have been available since they joined the Atlantic Coast Conference in 1953. After rattling off five ACC titles, State won its sixth under the leadership of head coach Norm Sloan. Sloan coached the Wolfpack from 1967 through 1980 and brought the first national championship to Raleigh. During the 1973-74 season, the Wolfpack dominated their opponents. They ran into seven-time defending national champions UCLA and lost big time. It proved to be the school’s only loss on route to a number one overall ranking and an invitation to the NCAA Tournament. They took care of business against Providence and Pittsburgh to set up a rematch against the UCLA Bruins. The Wolfpack prevailed in overtime by a score of 80-77. NC State knocked off Marquette to secure their first national championship.
The Wolfpack’s second national title came under the tutelage of coach Jim Valvano. The iconic sports figure led “The Cardiac Pack” to a number six seed in the NCAA Tournament. A string of narrow victories over Pepperdine and UNLV marked the opening rounds. The team beat Georgia in the Final Four to set up the championship game against Houston. Nicknamed Phi Slama Jama, the Cougars were highly favored and included NBA legends Clyde Drexler and Hakeem Olajuwon in their starting lineup. In one of the most famous college basketball games ever, Lorenzo Charles’ last-second dunk was the difference.
