Thought we’d take a small break this afternoon for some fun and a little focus on basketball. A lot more to come on basketball this week as we gear up for Primetime with the Pack and the start of basketball practice this Friday!
Remember, NC State was undefeated last year (I *think* the specific record was 10-0) when Scott Wood hit four or more three pointers.
The recruitment and eligibility of Rodney Purvis is particularly valuable to Scott Wood. Purvis’ athleticism and ability to create with the ball adds dimensions to the Wolfpack’s offense that CJ Williams did not offer in the 2011-2012 season. This additional threat and added offensive dimension will serve to spread defenses to the maximum design of Coach Gottfried’s offense. The idea of adding more slashing, cutting and driving to the basket from the wings should be even more salivating for Wood to find open opportunities to spot up from three for wide open shots on kick-outs.
