Andrew Loughran (Gigs), one of the team’s regular starters and a 5th year senior at NC State majoring in Mechanical Engineering, has hurted himself and will be operating the JinxCam this weekend.
The JinxCam will be recording games throughout the weekend. We are hoping to bring NC State fans select games live this weekend, but recorded games will definitely be available. Checkout the NC State Ultimate Youtube Channel for additional information.
After winning its first 5 games, including a victory over #3 seed Tufts, State lost a heart-breaker to GA Tech to go out in the quarter-finals. The tournament was won by the University of Michigan and the Championship game against Brown University was covered by the JinxCam.
