One of the difficulties with NC State’s hiring of Sidney Lowe is that he can’t yet make calls to recruits. But that doesn’t mean he can’t still make an impact.
Check these quotes from the coach (Bob Oliva) of Larry Davis, a star guard who reneged on his State commitment and picked Seton Hall instead:
Asked why Davis decided not to stick with N.C. State, Oliva said, “I don’t really know … I can only guess. You want me to guess?
“Well, they (N.C. State) took two months to name a coach, and then, when they did, they named a guy who can’t coach.
“That is about the stupidest thing I ever heard of.”
With that, Oliva hung up and returned to his Memorial Day activities.
