NC State basketball to host MTE Nov. 25-27

NC State basketball has become the latest ACC program to announce that it will host its own multi-team event (MTE). Three other programs — Charleston Southern, North Florida and Eastern Kentucky — will join NC State in Raleigh Nov. 25-27.

Earlier this week, Wake Forest announced that it, too, will host a four-team MTE in Winston-Salem: Nov. 25-27.

With adjustments for COVID-19, game play for 2020-21 college basketball season will start Nov. 25. Practices launched last week (Oct. 14).

The Duke Blue Devils will host a similar event on campus this season as well. Elon, Howard and Bellarmine will travel to Durham for another four-team MTE.

Random nerd note: North Florida, coached by Matthew Driscoll, has evolved into one of the main Moneyball teams in college hoops. During the 2019-20 season, the Osprey led the nation in 3-point attempt rate; over 52 percent of their field goal attempts came from beyond the arc. As a result, North Florida finished the season 31st nationally in adjusted offensive efficiency, per KenPom. Plenty of firepower returns for North Florida, too.
