For the 1999 season, Coach Tarantini has composed yet another
very difficult schedule. Not only does the Wolfpack face the rough
rigors of the ACC schedule, but Tarantini has also put together one of
the hardest non-conference schedules in school history.
The Pack will open the season by playing host to Charleston
Southern and Colgate in the adidas/Wolfpack Classic September 3-4.
They turn right around and head to Durham the next weekend to
participate in the Duke Footlocker Tournament. There they tangle with
two of the BIG EAST"s top teams in Connecticut and Rutgers, both of
which went to the NCAA Tournament last year.
This season NC State plays host to defending conference champion
Clemson, nationally-ranked Virginia, and rival North Carolina. Their
home non-conference schedule includes Elon, Liberty, Appalachian
State, and East Carolina. UNC Greensboro and UNC Charlotte will be in
town the weekend of October 30 to take part in the Big Four Tournament
with the Wolfpack and Duke.
"All the elements necessary for success are in place," said
Tarantini. "Out strengths are in our numbers, our pride, and our
hunger to build a better memory to sustain us through another year.
I"m excited about our future, very excited."
