N.C. State Legends Tom Gugliotta, Chris Corchiani Ejected From Game
Tom Gugliotta and Chris Corchiani, two of the best basketball players in N.C. State history, were ejected from today’s game against Florida State — not as players or coaches, but watching from the seats as fans.

Corchiani tweeted that no profanity was used, and the two former Wolfpack stars merely told referee Karl Hess he was having a bad game. The two men were dismissed from the arena to loud chants of “ref, you suck” from the home crowd.
Gugliotta’s No. 24 and Corchiani’s 13 were both retired by the N.C. State program. Gugliotta scored 1,536 points at N.C. State and had a long, productive career in the NBA; Corchiani is second in NCAA Div. 1 history with 1,038 assists.
