Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

The North Carolina State Wolfpack are celebrating their 100th year of men's basketball and the Raleigh faithful are hoping for an auspicious start to their second century. This official history will certainly feed their expectations. Homegrown award-winning sportswriter Tim Peeler pays due tribute to Wolfpack hoop accomplishments, which include two national championships, 17 conference titles, and six consecutive SC championships. Adding to the book's spice are profiles of outstanding players and coaches, descriptions of NC State basketball traditions, and no fewer than 230 photographs.

From the Publisher
"Wolfpack fans will take . . . delight in this celebration of a century of basketball."—Raleigh News & Observer

"An exhaustively researched coffee table tome chronicling everything from the program's humble beginnings on a converted dance floor to its march to the 1983 national title. For State fans, it's awesome in a both-Carolina-and-Duke-losing-on-the-first-day-of-the-ACC-tourney sort of way."—Jack Erwin, SLAMonline.com
