NC State’s Jimmy V jerseys say ‘Don’t ever give up’

1 Comment

North Carolina State will be taking part in the Jimmy V Classic next Tuesday against UConn, and as most of you should know, Jim Valvano was the head coach of the Wolfpack back in the 1980’s. He was at the helm when NC State won the 1983 national title.

In honor of Jimmy V, Adidas has made special uniforms for the event, and they are pretty awesome.

The jersey is pretty similar to what NC State’s normal uniform looks like, with two exceptions: there is a net laying around the jersey’s shoulders, and on the back of the jersey, instead of a name, there is the most memorable quote from Jimmy V’s legendary ESPY speech:

Georgetown announced on Saturday that senior center Bradley Hayes will be out indefinitely after breaking his left hand in practice on Thursday.

“It is a blow to our team, but I’m very disappointed for Bradley because of the heard work he has put in over the last four years to put himself in a position to have a good senior year,” Georgetown head coach John Thompson III said in a release. “He had successful surgery today and we expect him to fully recover but we’re not sure when he’ll return.”

The 7-foot-0 native of Jacksonville was putting together a very solid senior season before the injury. Hayes averaged 21.4 minutes per contest in which he put up 8.5 points and grabbed 6.6 rebounds per game. After playing sparringly during his first three seasons at Georgetown, Hayes has become a key interior piece for the Hoyas this season.

Without Hayes in the lineup, freshman Jessie Govan will get more minutes and have a chance to be the go-to post player in the Georgetown rotation.
