Following a season with embarrassing loses under previous coach Mark Gottfried - expectations were low for new coach Kevin Keatts and the Pack.

But after several upsets and conference road wins - the Wolfpack appears to be set to make it to the Big Dance.

The "Dance Card" formula has the Pack listed as a sure thing for the tournament.

That formula was developed by Jay Coleman of the University of North Florida, Mike DuMond of Economists Incorporated, and Allen Lynch of Mercer University.

It was designed to predict which teams will make to the NCAA Tourmament and has been correct 96 percent of the time over the last six years, the formula's website says.

So as of Feb. 19, the Pack is in.

N.C. State hosts Boston College on Tuesday before Florida State comes to Raleigh on Saturday.

The Pack rounds out the regular season with games against Georgia Tech in Atlanta and Louisville in Raleigh.
