About 4,500 people came out to Reynolds Coliseum Friday night for Red Rally, which marked the first official practice for the NC State men’s and women’s basketball teams. The event featured a 15-minute scrimmage for the men’s team, several full-court drills from the women’s team, a three-point shootout and a slam dunk contest, won by 7-foot-1 freshman Jordan Vandenberg.
