WolfpackHoops Catches Up With Coach Lowe




We had the privilege of catching up with Coach Lowe this past Saturday at the practice round for the Jimmy V Classic. We greatly appreciate Coach Lowe taking time in between shots to allow us to ask a few questions.

    ^No, we communicated with the public relations people with the tournament and they helped set it up.

    haha see, this is the type of stuff that I love. This is the type of stuff that no other site does. The video interviews are great and the questions you guys ask seem to get the players or coaches to expose a more human side which is something as fans is good to see every now and then.

    I really hope you guys keep doing what you are are doing because this is the type of website that the fans, and NC State University has desperately needed.

    Keep doing what you are doing, and don't stop covering the side stuff that no one else is covering.

    I'm going to donate a little bit to you guys on Friday when i get paid because there is no doubt that you guys are putting in massive time and work to these 2 sites that seem to be out doing other sites that have people working on a full time salary.

    sheeesh. ok...carry on.

    "If you can't dream, and you can't believe it won't happen."

    What a great quote!

    Also, I hope we don't lose Sid to the PGA! :P That was a nice smooth swing! ha

    ^^^ thanks for the kind words and support. We'll certainly keep doing what we're doing!

    ^ He was wearing the pink pants for Kay Yow.

    Also Larry Harris was there, however we did not get to see him play since he was in a different group.

    "Teamwork makes the Dreamwork" 1 quote I was always told by my high school coach when I played from 1999-2003. My team won our private school conference 3 of the 4 years with 7 players on our team and every team we played had atleast 10-12 players. We played with passion and we played with great teamwork to get through the 3 years. We all 7 grew to be best friends and we graduated together and shortly after our school shut down because of lack of students with all the public schools in our area and the economy the way it is people could not afford our school. What I mean by all of this is that it does not matter if you have the majority of players or if you have the absolute best talent. You have to have passion for the game and passion for your school and that is EXACTLY what Sidney Lowe represents ! He is changing the culture at N.C. State not just trying to win more than we have in the past. He deserves to be here, and his actions off the court will start showing on the court this upcoming season!!! He is a down to earth great person and ANY parents should see him and want their kid to play for Mr. Sidney Lowe.

    Wolfpack Hoops you guys are amazing thanks for the awesome videos and all of the stuff you do to keep Wolfpack Basketball relevant in the off-season. I think it would be nice if all of us would donate reguarly. I know it's tough in the economy but I think we could all donate 10 bucks a month, that is nothing compared to all of the work these guy's do but if we would all come together as a community and donate just 10 bucks a month it would really add up and help these guys as much as possible. How does that sound wolfpack community?? thanks ! GO WOLFPACK

    That was very well said TJ. It is great to read posters that have had great experiences happen to them through hard work, good decision making, discipline, and a never say die attitude.

    Even better is when people relate those experiences into values they look for in the teams and athletes they choose to follow. Great to hear about the success' you and your friends had.

    There is a very good overview of the upcoming ACC season on ESPN's basketball page right now. Not a lot of love for State, but I suppose I can't blame them - it's a pretty sober and realistic prediction based on past performance and what we have coming in. Scott Wood gets some love, which is nice to see.

    Cothron news - changing schools...to Connecticut:

    From Dustin Rumbaugh:
    "This is the fifth high school for Cothron, who began his career at Madison Academy in Huntsville, then moved to Nashville Christian Academy, stayed for a brief stint at the Patterson School in North Carolina, and finally ended up at Flora MacDonald Academy in Red Springs, North Carolina last year.

    The question on everyone's mind is whether or not this will have an affect on Cothron's recruitment. He currently lists such big time schools Alabama, North Carolina, Arkansas, Louisville, Mississippi State, NC State, Oklahoma and most notably at this time, Connecticut. Durham, CT is located just about an hour away from Storrs and it's something that Cothron realizes will have some affect on his recruitment.

    "It will because I'll be up there a lot and I'll be able to see the school a lot more," he noted.

    For now, Cothron plans on cutting his list around the middle of September. With Cothron moving closer to Storrs, you can expect Connecticut to make full use of that advantage and, thus, be a major player until the end."
