It’s State Versus Carolina Tonight! (Sort of…)

July 13, 2010

If you’ve been following the NC Pro Am this season and are an N.C. State fan, most likely tonight is the night you circled on the schedule when it was released.

At 8:00pm tonight (a change from 6:00, for those that haven’t looked at the schedule lately), Team McGladrey, featuring Tracy Smith, CJ Williams, 2011 commitment Joseph Uchebo and the tremendous trio of CJ Leslie, Ryan Harrow and Lorenzo Brown, will be facing off against Team Stackhouse featuring John Henson, Justin Watts and incoming recruits Reggie Bullock and Harrison Barnes.

It may be just a summer league exhibition, but I can guarantee you that folks will be cramming the stands tonight as if it were an ACC Tournament Final.

Luckily, admission is free–otherwise scalpers would be making a killing tonight. If you’re planning to go, be sure to get there early (I wouldn’t plan on getting there after 6:30) to ensure you’ll have a seat.

I’ll be there tonight to take some photos and give you a rundown on how the action unfolds. I expect that you’ll see some spirited play from both sides, particularly on the defensive end, moreso than you’d typically see in a summer league game.

    If you’re there early, maybe you could reserve me some seats. Just put up some “RESERVED: OFFICIAL BLOG BUSINESS” signs.

      LOL, I’ll do that.

      Actually, I was able to secure a photo pass for the 8:00 game, so I’ll be court-side for that, but I’ll be in the stands for games 1 and 2.

      From what I understand based on a Tweet the Pro Am folks sent out earlier this evening, NCAA regulations prevent the games being broadcast. I’m not sure why, but I imagine it has to do with the mixed pro, college and amateur statuses of the players.
