Set an Email Reminder for NCAA Tournament - (8) North Carolina State vs. (9) Temple
Start Time: Mar 22, 2013 01:40PM (Eastern)
NC State had a disappointing season when compared to pre-season expectations, but they still managed fourth place in the ACC, and had big wins over North Carolina and Duke. Temple finished tied for third in the Atlantic-10 and beat VCU, Saint Louis, Butler, and Syracuse this season. This could turn out to be one of the best early round games in the tournament, especially if Temple comes out strong. Plus, it comes 30 years after NC State's historic tournament victory (the subject of a recent "30 for 30").
