RALEIGH, NC: At approximately 9 p.m. on Monday, January 23, Raleigh was given shocking news: NC State has a basketball team.

Basketball is the sport with an orange rounded object that is bounced throughout a gymnasium court and thrown into a hoop for point(s).

The sport is not football. But is apparently also played at NC State.

People took the news differently as news hit that the newly formed (we think) team beat a known team, Duke. At a score of 84-82, the Wolfpack beat a good team for the first time of the year.

In this sport points are only 1 (one), 2 (two) or 3 (three). As in, one basket (ball thrown successfully in hoop) counts for two points most of the time. Sometimes, the ball is thrown at a line while others watch for one point. Other times, the ball can be thrown from a more challenging distance for three points.

Patrick Smith, a junior majoring in sports management was interviewed after the game finished right outside the Cameron. “Oh, a game happened here?” he said.

Smith was informed of the new phenomenon that is basketball, and then stated, “oh, cool.”

As Raleigh realizes its variation in sports, we must lean on each other and support those who feel threatened or hurt by the news of a newer, orange-r sport.
