- Hoops for Hope is an annual event started in 2006 to raise money for the Susan G. Komen Foundation, which does breast cancer research. Kay Yow, the women's basketball team coach since 1975, was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 1987. It went into remission, but reappeared in 2004. At the 2007 Hoops for Hope event with over 8,000 participants, 45,000 dollars was raised for the Foundation. The Lady Wolfpack, which wore pink uniforms for the game, beat Boston College 64-46. Kay Yow was awarded 2008's Courage Angel Pin for her help in fighting breast cancer.

- General note:
- Completed in 1949, the building with seating for 14,000 people is named after William Neal Reynolds, president of the R. J. Reynolds Tobacco Company founded by his brother. Construction of Reynolds Coliseum was originally proposed by David Clark after 5,000 people from all over North Carolina were rained out of a Farmers' Week meeting in 1940. The coliseum was home to the basketball team for nearly 50 years, including two NCAA champion teams. Reynolds Coliseum also provides a venue for large university and city events. Today it houses several NC State athletic teams, as well as NC State's ROTC units. The men’s basketball team moved to the RBC Center in 2000.
