Series History

This will be the third meeting between the Cowboys and Wolfpack on the hardwood with all having come on a neutral court. OSU won both previous meetings.

The teams first met in the Second Round the 1991 NCAA Tournament. A 6 seed in the East Region, OSU beat NC State 73-64 in the first season of Eddie Sutton’s tenure. OSU went on to lose to Cinderella Temple in the Sweet 16.

More recently, OSU beat the Wolfpack 76-56 in the 2012 Puerto Rico Tipoff event.

NC State came into that game No. 6 in the country, but Travis Ford’s Cowboys dominated. Le’Bryan Nash scored 23 points to go with eight rebounds. He was an impressive 13-for-13 from the foul line. Marcus Smart added 20, also stuffing the stat sheet with seven rebounds, seven assists, four blocks and four steals. Phil Forte added 17 points, hitting four 3-pointers.
