Inside the Case Academic Center are trophy rooms, offices, kitchen, dining for athletes, and lounges. The center was built on funding organized by the Wolfpack Club and given entirely by private sources. Everett N. Case, for whom the building is named, was known nationwide as the “Old Grey Fox,” a name which he earned through his incredible winning record.
When he coached at NC State from 1946-1965, the Thompson Gymnasium (now the Thompson Theater) attracted such huge crowds that it was forced to close due to fire hazards of overcrowding. Under Case’s leadership, NC State won 6 championships in the old Southern Conference, 6 out of 7 Dixie Classic Tournaments, and 6 victories over the UNC-CH Tarheels. His total record at the university is 379 wins to 134 losses. The effect of his accomplishments was the introduction of big-time basketball to the South and the popularization of the game for millions of people.
