#GoPack. 🐺 In last night’s selection — and for the first time in the program’s history — NC State’s women’s basketball team claimed a No. 1 seed for the upcoming NCAA tournament.

This comes after a phenomenal season for the Wolfpack (the fifth under Coach Wes Moore), winning 17 games + taking home the ACC Championship title for the second season in a row — and the second time in nearly 30 years. Junior Elissa Cunane single-handedly scored 70 points during the three games of the ACC tournament in February and was named MVP for 2021.

The Wolfpack will play its first match-up next Sun., Mar. 21 against No. 16 seed NC A&T. You can tune in at 4 p.m. via ESPN2 or ESPNU to cheer on our home team.

Since 2018, the team has progressed through the NCAA tournament to the Sweet Sixteen. If they win Sunday, they’ll move on to the second round of the tournament to play against either the South Florida Bulls or the Washington State Cougars on Tues., Mar. 23. 🏀 Fill out your bracket here.

UNC fans, we see you. 👣 The Tar Heels will enter the women’s tournament with a No. 10 seed, facing off against No. 7 seed Alabama on Mon., Mar. 22 at 12 online, via ESPN, or by checking your local listings, then use the links below to encourage your friends to do the same.
