To celebrate last night’s win which completes the sweep of NC State in men’s basketball during the regular season once again, we thought we’d update an old graphic that was created while the Wolfpack’s ill-advised “Our State” advertising campaign was ongoing.
Yes, it has been 33 years since the Wolfpack has won a national championship in any sport except… wait for it… Bass Fishing. North Carolina might be NC State’s state on a level much different from the one they attempted to promote, but that stat is definitely theirs.
A FEW OTHER STATS OWNED BY THE WOLFPACK:
NC State is 3-30 against Roy Williams.
The last time the Wolfpack had a coach with a winning record against UNC is when they had Everett Case on the sideline from 1946 to 1965. Case was 25-19 against the Tar Heels.
NC State is now 77-153 against UNC in men’s basketball.
To be fair, it’s difficult to excel in anything else if you spend every waking moment focused on how to bring down UNC. Or should we say “UNCheat”, the not-so-ingeniously creative way those adorable whimpering pups now refer to the Tar Heels?

Free Carolina Victory Song and Wallpapers:
“Carolina Victory,” one of several University of North Carolina official school songs, was written by Robert McManeus, Class of ’38. If you’ve been to any Tar Heel football or basketball games, I’m sure you’ve heard it. If you don’t know the song, now is a great time to learn it.
Here are the lyrics:
There’ll be a Carolina Victory
When cross the field the foe has fled
Cheer the team to Victory
For we are Tar Heels Born and Bred (Rah! Rah! Rah!)
Glory Glory U.N.C.
Our hearts will live with thee
Fight! Fight! Fight for the Blue and White are
Rolling to Victory!

After the late game against Stanford and all the postgame interviews, the Tar Heel women’s basketball team took the red-eye home last night from California. Then they went to class this morning — some of them on no sleep.
I’m extremely proud of and impressed with this basketball team. It is a young but talented team, and everyone is expected to be back next season, including Coach Sylvia Hatchell. #BrightFuture
The Elite 8 matchup was much closer than the 74-65 final score indicates, as Stanford went on an 8-0 run starting around the 1:40 mark to close out the game. The Tar Heels led by as much as 13 at one point.
DeShields had a poor shooting night, hitting only 5 of 15. Yet, only 2 more strong minutes of play by the young Heels, and they would have been Final Four bound. That’s heartbreaking, but it’s also high-octane fuel for getting better.
As competitive as this group is — DeShields especially — not being able to close out a game of that magnitude on the big stage will eat at them and drive them to work harder every single day. Look for big things from this team going forward.
I can’t wait for next season and the next and the next.
