After losing the top two players from a solid past season, NC State Basketball looks to reload for 2020-21.
To say Kevin Keatts has not done a great job in his time in Raleigh is an understatement. He has led NC State Basketball to three consecutive 20-win seasons and has been very solid on the recruiting trail including a top 25 class nationally this year.
Last year the Wolfpack had an up and down season, finishing 20-12 (10-10 Conf.) and finished with a 73-58 win over Pittsburgh at the ACC Tournament, which set up a big game with Duke that had major NCAA Tournament implications for the Wolfpack.
Now of course, if State loses this game, there is no way they make it in. However, if they win this game State almost most definitely goes to the NCAA Tournament and gives them a good shot at winning the ACC Tournament.
With the Wolfpack losing their top two players in C.J. Bryce and Markell Johnson, the Wolfpack look a lot different this year. NC State also has NCAA allegations looming over them with allegations of the previous regime of Mark Gottfried paying former NC State player Dennis Smith we could see a lot of change at NC State this season.
While the Wolfpack will look a lot different this year, they should be still very competitive. So here is a look at NC State’s rotation for this upcoming year.
