Wolf Pack and Wolfpack

wpwp.jpgFormer NC State national champion and NBA player Tom Burleson visited with the Nevada women's basketball team over the weekend. Burleson, who is 7'2 (NC State listed him as 7'4), helped lift the Wolfpack to a 1974 NCAA Championship win over John Wooden's UCLA team. The center was drafted third by the Seattle Supersonics in the 1974 NBA Draft and was also a member of the 1972 U.S. Olympic Basketball Team that lost an epic and controversial gold medal game to the Soviet Union. The entire 1972 Olympic Basketball team believed they had been cheated and voted unanimously to not accept the silver. In 2002, Burleson was named to the ACC 50th Anniversary men's basketball team honoring the fifty greatest players in Atlantic Coast Conference history.

Wolf Pack head coach Jane Albright's cousin Andy Albright (pictured in red), is also an NC State alum and set up the visit with his friend. Tom and Andy shared their past experiences and stories with the team as they get ready to face Wake Forest Monday afternoon.

Former WNBA Player and Olympic Gold Medalist Ruthie Bolton Visits Pack

ruthie.jpgThe Nevada women's basketball team had a special guest in its locker room following a tough road loss to Pacific last night. Former WNBA player and Olympic Gold Medalist Ruthie Bolton stopped by to offer some words of encouragement and meet with the team. Bolton and current Wolf Pack women's basketball director of basketball operations Carla McGhee played together on the 1996 Olympic team where the squad won the gold medal in Atlanta. Bolton and McGhee also squared off against each other in the SEC, as Ruthie played for Auburn while Carla played for Tennessee.

Download the Wolf Pack Basketball Schedules

We've finally gotten around to adding a feature that several of you have been asking about for quite a while. You can now subscribe to sports schedules in your Outlook or other calendar applications.

We currently have men's and women's basketball schedules posted, along with football. We will have baseball and softball available soon for their Spring seasons, and we'll be adding all the rest of the sports along the way.

You can get the link to subscribe on the right side of the sport's respective front page. They are titled "Downloadable Schedule" and will not take you to a calendar page. Instead, the link should be copied, and pasted into a spot in your calendar application for subscribing to an outside calendar. By using this method, it allows us to change the schedule on our end and have it update on yours automatically. For instance, if a time is not yet scheduled for a game (see Boise State in football this season), we may have it set as an all-day event. Once we get work on the kickoff time, we'll update the schedule, and it will automatically appear as the correct time on your calendar.

To save you a little time, here are the links to the schedules we have up:
