Taylor’s Tuesday Top 25, Thoughts, and Games To Watch

View Comments
Duke v North Carolina State

I’m truly happy for NC State fans. They are one of the most passionate fanbases in America, and have gotten very little in return since the early 1990’s. Last Saturday’s victory over Duke was their biggest since beating the Blue Devils in 2004. But personally, I’ll be more impressed if they validate that victory with a win on the road tomorrow night at Maryland, and beat North Carolina at home on January 26th. Both of those teams aren’t as good as the Wolfpack, but College Park is a very difficult place to play, and Mark Gottfried’s teams have historically had (LOTS OF) trouble on the road, while Roy Williams owns NC State. So winning both of those games will be great signs that NC State basketball has truly returned to the national stage.
