Video: NC State plays intense pool basketball game

Ever since Mark Gottfried went to NC State to be the head men’s basketball coach, he has been nothing but good for the team. He turned them from a sub-.500 team that hadn’t made the NCAA Tournament in five years to a team that has now made four straight appearances in the tournament with two Sweet Sixteen appearances.

Coach Gottfried has also built a strong bond for this team by allowing them to use his in-ground pool for a very intense game of “pool basketball.”

College Spun shared the videos and pictures of the team having fun like any male attending college should over the summer. The team looks to be staying in great physical shape as the season rapidly approaches.

The Wolfpack went into the NCAA Tournament as an eight seed last season and made it to the Sweet Sixteen. Their journey throughout the Tournament was a great one after they hung on to beat LSU by one and then went on to upset one seed Villanova in the Round of 32.

The team will look to make their fifth straight appearance in the NCAA Tournament when they kick off the season in November. This season can’t get here fast enough.
