Photos from N.C. State's win over North Florida

ACC women's basketball is here, y'all. Also, links from things I've done recently.

Welcome back to All in the Game, y’all.

And happy Thanksgiving!

I’ve shifted a lot of my ACC women’s basketball coverage over to The Next, but I still plan to use this newsletter to compliment that coverage with photo galleries, Q&A’s and — eventually, once we get past this damn pandemic — travelogues and other features. And maybe I’ll write about beer or movies or whatever else here too.


Anyways, the 2020-21 women’s college basketball season started Wednesday and I went to N.C. State. The No. 8 Wolfpack gave North Florida a whuppin’, winning 93-65 inside Reynolds Coliseum. Jada Boyd racked up 15 points and 10 boards in her first collegiate start, while Kai Crutchfield poured in 21 points.

I sat in the upper deck of Reynolds Coliseum, took notes and shot photos while wearing a mask. There wasn’t anyone within 20 feet of me and I felt pretty safe. It was nice to be able to just watch basketball — giving a sense of normalcy to a year that has been anything but.

Here’s some photos from the game:

Stay safe. Y’all be good.
