The Confidential’s All-Time NC State Basketball Team

Suppose you had to play one game… for all the marbles… and you could use your time machine (or TARDIS) to put together a team of 12 players at their peaks.  Who would you pick?  Well, the Confidential does not know who YOU would pick.  But here is who the Confidential would pick for NC State:

Center: Tom Burleson, Ronnie Shavlik

Power Forward: David Thompson, Tom Guggliota, Thurl Bailey

Small Forward: Lorenzo Charles, TJ Warren

Shooting Guard: Derek Whittenburg, Julius Hodge

Point Guard: Sidney Lowe, Chris Corchani, Monty Towe

What do you think?  Would you make any substitutions?

Stay tuned for other schools’ lists…Syracuse, Wake Forest, Virginia Tech

  1. Nearly the entire National Championship team. Who was the 5th player on that team?

    As exciting as that run was, I always thought that both NC State and Villanova were not as much Cinderellas as they were underachievers during the regular season.

      Terry Gannon and Ernie Myers didn’t make the list although they were considered.

      The thing about the ’83 team was that Derek Whittenburg was hurt for most of conference play which is why most counted them out

  2. I like it. Would love to see Spud Webb in there, but who to take off? Can you make it thirteen?

    The biggest argument I see would be Rodney Monroe over Hodge. When Rodney’s shots were dropping, he could take over a game like no other. I would have loved to see Hodge play under V or Gott, who allow for more isolation/1 on 1. I always saw him as a player who had to overcome the Princeton offense.

Its also impossible for me to imagine “Fire” on the court without “Ice” I would have loved to see Hodge play under V or Gott, who allow for more isolation/1 on 1.

      I totally agree. Hodge led State to the sweet 16 with virtually no help in a Princeton type offense. Had he had some help around him, there’s no telling how far they would have gone
