The NC State Wolfpack men's basketball team represents North Carolina State University in NCAA Division I men's basketball competition. The Wolfpack currently compete in the Atlantic Coast Conference, of which they were a founding member.

Prior to joining the ACC in 1954, the Wolfpack were a member of the Southern Conference, where they won seven conference championships. As a member of the ACC, the Wolfpack have won ten conference championships and two national championships. Their unexpected 1983 title was one of the most memorable in NCAA history.

NC State began varsity intercollegiate competition in men's basketball in 1911. In 97 years of play, the Wolfpack rank 24th in total victories among NCAA Division I college basketball programs and 26th in winning percentage among programs with at least 25 years in Division I. The team's all-time record is 1503-894 (.627).

The program saw its greatest success during the head coaching tenures of Everett Case (1946–1965), Norm Sloan (1967–1980), and Jim Valvano (1980–1990).

NC State has produced some of the ACC's greatest players in Tom Burleson, Rodney Monroe, Monte Towe, and Ron Shavlik. David Thompson, who lead the Wolfpack to their first NCAA title in 1974, has been recognized as one of college basketball's greatest players. The Wolfpack have won 17 total conference tournaments and seven regular season conference titles. They have appeared in the NCAA Tournament 22 times, with three Final Four appearances (1950, 1974, 1983) and two national titles (1974, 1983).
