Before N.C. State fans salivate too much over the Wolfpack's 12-1 basketball start, its best under coach Herb Sendek, perhaps a bit of sobering history should be noted. The Pack's 1988-1989 team was 12-1, only to lose at North Carolina in its next game. State also was 12-1 in 1981-82, only to lose to North Carolina in its next game. And State's next game this season? At North Carolina on Saturday, naturally.
True blue test ahead
