N.C. State will play its second game in a row in Reynolds Coliseum on Sunday against Harvard in the second round of the NIT.

The two-seeded Wolfpack (23-11) beat Hofstra in the tournament’s first round on Tuesday in Reynolds, while Harvard (19-11), the sixth seed, defeated Georgetown on Wednesday night, 71-68.

The game is set for a 7:30 p.m. tip, and could be the last home game of the season, depending on No. 1 seed UNC Greensboro’s result on Saturday against No. 5 Lipscomb.
