Pack Commits Shine in All-Star Games

Scott Wood, Richard Howell, and Lorenzo Brown all participated in All-Star games yesterday and as you can guess, all 3 made big impacts in their games.
Wood, who was selected to play in the North/South Indiana All-Star game, represented the North squad and represented them Well. Scott drained 5 of his 6 three pointers in the first half to give him 15 points. Although he did not score after the intermission, that 15 managed to hold as the Norths leading total.

“I felt really good in that first half,” Wood said. “Part of (the struggles) in the second half was that I haven’t been playing as much since the season ended, so I was a bit out of shape. I think it affected me after halftime.
“All-Star games are going to be like this where there are some runs and big plays,” Wood said. “We didn’t win but I had a lot of fun.”

600 miles away, two other NC State commits were showcasing their skills in another All-Star game. Lorenzo Brown and Richard Howell were both participants in the Charm City Challenge All-Star Game in Baltimore. Sir Rich was a monster and banged his way to 17 points and 8 boards and was a dominant inside presence. Right behind him was Lorenzo Brown who sliced and diced his way to 13 points and 5 assists.

It is very encouraging to see our boys performing so well on a big stage, but let's be honest, we're getting used to it with these guys. Whether it be regular season, playoffs, or all-star games, it just seems like these kids step up and stand out. We can't begin to say how excited we are for this 2009 recruiting class to land on campus June 27th.

The quotes in this article came from the Chronicle-Tribune.

    Just a comment on Scott Wood. Here is a kid putting up 5/6 from the three point line, and this is a consistent stat for him (and I might add that he doesn't care how far back he shoots these 3's from). Besides being able to drip the 3's, this kid follows up on his plays and has Ray Allenish ablility to drive and make key plays. He knows how to take fouls as well and capitalizes from the free throw line. This will be especially important since he will be probably be playing at the 2 or 3 with NCSU.

    Thanks to WH for all the info, links, videos, and interview with Scott! You guys really help shine light on the heart of the Wolfpack.

    Scott wants to win, and will be an amazing addition to the Wolfpack.

    Thanks and very good assessment of Scott. He is extremely underrated and will be a huge contributor for years to come.

    Guys like Scott are very important to building a successful basketball team, with his high character, high IQ and team first attitude he will be a key addition to this program that we feel is on the cusp of something special .

    Sidney's track record for grabbing underrated talent, and late bloomer is starting to look rather nice. Add them along with the big guns he's bringing in and you have yourself the start of something very promising.
