I thought yall might find that interesting. #sources"


What time is the selection show??

Thought middlebrooks played well after starting shitty. Mo pretty lackluster but sat forever in 2nd half. Glad burns didn't get in foul trouble

Crowd prob about 60/40, ncsu/duke, but duke fans seemed louder and more annoying

So 6:09 Eastern tip Saturday = 3:09 Phoenix, which means nothing all game again for Diarra. We’re going to need all our big men to try and deal with this giant Edey fuck

Fucking amazing. Beyond belief.

I’ve never experienced this level of joy from sports. I’ve spent too much time being sad and mad and upset about sports in my life. But this is amazing. Fucking cloud 9, guys. I’d hug every one of yall if I could.

This has been an unreal ride, totally out of nowhere.
Purdue will be like when State had to go against 7’-4” multiple time player of the year Ralph Sampson in 1983. Will they be able to overcome Eddy? Need Burns, Diarra, and Middlebrooks to battle all game long.

What was up with the subs? At least twice Burns got like only 20 second breather. And a few other players. Some of the time outs were like ok start playing again already.

Diarra was noticeably less effective this game. He still provided some good defense, but didn't quite have the energy of the previous games. Also Burns was carrying the offense almost the entire night - Duke chose not to double him and had no answer for him defensively. No reason for him to sit any longer than he needed to. Also, Middlebrooks definitely played the role of agitator and got under Filipowskis skin while drawing multiple fouls against him. He was an excellent matchup against that crybaby in both the last 2 games.

Not sure why you're questioning substitutions in a game where Keatts thoroughly outcoached Scheyer. Just absolutely pantsed him.

At the end Burns was being subbed out for defensive possession and put back in for offense. Diarra could have played more, but he got into foul trouble, and then we didn’t really need him. We made the awesome comeback in the second half, took the lead, and stayed with the hot hands

9 game win streak. Includes 2 OT games. But average margin of victory is 9.7 ppg. We’re winning comfortably outside of the 2 OT games. We’re just straight up the better team in these games. Not a lot of luck or flukiness involved. We aren’t shooting 60% on 3s or anything like that.

Never thought we would get back to this point. Still playing with house money, gotta contain that 7'4" monster on Saturday.

Still been an amazing run and it can still keep going every game has had someone different step up.

Really is true. Beat all 5 other ACC teams with a natty to win the ACCT (especially the recent giants and original acc members Duke, uva, UNC). Then beating Duke (again) to make the final 4. It’s insane.

Even beating Shaka in the s16 has subplot of his ties to previous State coaching searches.

With the family at Universal Studios Orlando and we took an early dinner break to watch the game with number of other fans. Epic. Went right back to riding rides that night and all day today. Haven’t had a chance to really let it soak in yet, but goddamn it feels so fucking good! Why not us! Keep it going guys

It’s so crazy & different getting so much national attention like ^^^ and so many other things right now, where typically we are just glossed over or ignored. I saw a born and raised west coast comedian on twitter with absolutely no ties to NC asking about getting a Burns jersey the other day

It’s definitely surreal. I work with a team of colleagues spread all over the country and they’ve actually heard of my Alma mater now. Good stuff.

Also, for the first time ever, I’m looking forward to watching women’s basketball.
