This past weekend Scott added to his list of accomplishments as he was invited to play in the Hoosiers Reunion All-Star Game. Played in the legendary gym from "Hoosiers," people walked out talking about a new underdog. His name is Scott Wood, and in a game littered with high D-1 talent, it was Wood(the 3 star prospect) who grabbed the audience's attention. We could not track down a box score, but Scott informed us that he dropped 26 points, handed out 9 assists as he led his team to the 27 point victory.
This was on the heels of the Indystar.com asking "Is Scott Wood the one that got away?"
Wood is headed to North Carolina State in the fall. Some might wonder how he would have looked in an Indiana or Purdue uniform. We'll never know. Coaches don't have enough time to spend it worrying about a player that signed elsewhere.
"He's going to be a top-flight player," said North Carolina State assistant Monte Towe. "He's a great shooter, but he'll be more than just a shooter."
It will be interesting - and you can bet people in Marion will be watching - to see how Wood progresses at North Carolina State.
