NC State coach Mark Gottfried will have a special guest when the Wolfpack travel to New York City next Monday for Tuesday's showdown against UConn at Madison Square Garden for the Jimmy V Classic. Pam Valvano Strasser, the widow of legendary former NC State coach Jim Valvano, who was part of the Wolfpack's inaugural athletic hall of fame class last October, will be joining Gottfried's team on the flight to New York City. Gottfried, who also worked with adidas for the specially designed jerseys for the game, wants the players to know the history of the program and meet her.
