About the author:
Jim Pomeranz is a 1977 graduate of NC State University, a native of Sanford NC, and an avid and lifetime Wolfpack fan. He ventured into journalism early in his college career, reporting on intramural athletics for the student newspaper, Technician, writing his way from staff writer to assistant sports editor and to sports editor and serving in that position when the Wolfpack basketball team won the 1974 NCAA national championship. Following graduation, Pomeranz worked in the sports information department of the NCSU department of athletics and for the Wolfpack Club, 1977-87, as publications editor overseeing content and publishing of the basketball and football media guides and game programs. Along with being at courtside for the 1974 title game, Pomeranz was also at courtside when the Wolfpack won the 1983 NCAA championship. While a student, while working at State and for a few years after, he covered Atlantic Coast Conference basketball and other topics for United Press International. 1973-74: Reliving the NC State Wolfpack's Title Run is Pomeranz's first published book, but, as an avid writer, he maintains two websites: Actions and Reactions II (jimpomeranz.blogspot.com) and NC Golfer (ncgolfer.blogspot.com). As a student writer and sports editor, Pomeranz followed in the footsteps of his father, Robert E. (Bob) Pomeranz (NCSU '43) who also wrote for the Technician and was sports editor, 1941-42.

Authored by Jim Pomeranz

The history of the 1973-74 NC State basketball team takes a new twist with 1973-74 Reliving the NC State Wolfpack's Title Run. Author Jim Pomeranz reaches into the archives of the NCSU student newspaper, the Technician, and offers an account of the Wolfpack winning the national title as it happens. Fortunate to be the Technician sports editor in the spring of 1974, Pomeranz guides the reader from pre-season to post-season and beyond with this unique look at the greatest-ever NC State Wolfpack basketball team. This book includes articles from the Technician written and printed in the newspaper that year. Also included is an interesting interview Pomeranz conducted with David Thompson, the national player of the year, just after the 1973-74 season.
