Wood and Seniors Rally Past Juniors 105-83 in Indiana Junior/Senior All-Star Game


2009 NC State commit Scott Wood has been very busy these days playing in All-Star game after All-Star game. Last night he competed in the Indiana Junior/Senior game at Benton Central High School where he helped guide the Seniors to a 105-83 victory.

Wood continued his consistent play as he filled up the nets to the tune of 17 points. His stock is rising every day and is getting those in Raleigh a bit anxious for the arrival of the 6'6 sharpshooter. He will be in action again on Thursday where they will be playing the second round of the Junior/Senior All-Star Games. We talked with Wood a little while back and he described his off-season and what he's been doing to get ready for the coming ACC season.

    WPH, I gotta ask. I hate rumors just as much as anyone else. But sourses have told me if the Lakers win the championship then it is very likely Phil Jackson may retire(Age and health). One of the top coaching candidates to replace him will be, once again, Coach K. This source of mine tells me it'll be hard for Coach K to turn down the position twice especially with the relationship that Coach K and Kobe have. He would essentially be receiving 4x (from 2mil to 8mil) the pay raise and coming in to Coach the championship team with one of the best players in the league. I know this is wolfpack basketball but I guess you have built some bridges since opening this site. Any news? or maybe I should ask, any news you would like to share?

    ^
    So here is the rundown on the Lakers situation. Phil really wants this championship (seemingly worse than he has in any other year) which is leading many to believe that he is contemplating retiring.

    As far as K goes, the person we spoke to does not think he'll be the first option. It's looking like Kurt Rambis may be looking to take over the reigns which many believe is why he turned down the Sacramento Kings job.

    We'll keep a close eye on this for you.

    WPH great reads on Scott Wood... the more I read the more I see about him I think he should been ranked higher... I would like think his nickname will be Dagger. Know for putting that last nail in the coffin of other teams.

    I must also ask If your going to have anyone covering the Wolfpack Football camps and The Wolfpack Basketball camps? If you have heard any tidbit on Football recruiting instate would be very nice to help quench my thirst as we are 77 days away from kick off. I am glad to know you guys are revamping the football site you guys run. You guys as always do a excellent job.. THANKS FOR ALL YOU GUYS DO!

    GO WOLFPACK
    TOUCHDOWN WOLFPACK!!!

    Either way, it will be interesting to note if K's/Duke's recent and slight "slippage" in the collegiate BB heirarchy might effect this situation.

    Taking that into account, and if K should wind up with another offer from LA, might the grass possibly appear a little greener to him now?

    I seriously doubt he leaves Duke, but who knows?

    As far as Scott Wood goes, don't get wrapped up in all of this fervor or change a thing that you're doing young man, just keep playing the game like you have been.

    Did you know Coach K has been to 7 NCAA Championship games and is only 3-4 in those. I didn't realize it was so many

    LoneWolf,
    The Elite camps are closed off to the media, so no we can't cover those. As far as football goes, we'll be back in early August with recruiting news, and team updates.

    I wonder if coaching the USA team is going to have any effect on his decision to coach in the NBA. You have to admit, someone would give him a shot if he was interested and if (big IF) LA gave him a shot it would be tough to turn down. Its not like Sidney Lowe's situation, taking over a terrible Minnesota team. It'll be the defending champs. And yes LA will win the championship this year

    Man I love how crazy they are in the Hooiser state about basketball 365. They are playing these All Star games as soon as school is getting over and most college signees will transition right into their college careers w/o much lay off at all.

    I wonder if this will give Wood an added edge being that he will have more recent game situations when it comes to working out this summer here at State.

    It goes w/o saying that the the big guard/ small forward positions are WIDE open this year and for the taking for the players who are ready to step up. It is one of the reasons it should be a more exciting team this year, IMO, because we've yet seen what Lowe can do with two true triple threat players helping the pg attack defenses.

    Here is a good interview with Ryan and 2k Sports. Interesting talking about his loyalty to NC State (more specifically Sidney Lowe) Ryan talks like Lo Brown will be running point next year, not SG like everyone expects him to. Maybe he knows something we dont.... Id be ok with a lineup of

    1 Lo Brown
    2 Scott Wood
    3 Johnny Thomas
    4 Howell
    5 T Smith

    I do not know anything about the Coach K and Lakers job, but I have heard something about Coach K from a reliable source. Coach K is only expected to coach only about five more years at Duke. The main reason is that he wants to spend time with his family.

    Good Scott Wood read in the Indianaplis Star today:

    http://www.indystar.com/article/20090611/SPORTS0203/906110420/1160/SPORTS0203/The+All-Star+who+got+away

    Quote from the article:
    ""My family was pretty much split down the middle between IU and Purdue fans," Wood said. "Not me. I was a Duke fan. Now I get to beat them twice a year.""
