Hodge should cautiously test the NBA draft

Whether it turns out to be a no or a go, it's time for Julius Hodge to know. The N.C. State basketball star isn't NBA draft lottery material yet and may never be, even if he returns for a fourth season with the Wolfpack. <p><small><b>Other featured stories for 3/24:</b></small><li><a href="http://www.wilmingtonstar.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20040324/NEWS/403240407/1005/sports" target=blank><b>'Pack, Heels close, but not quite up to elite status</b></a>


The Hodge Watch

"But unless Hodge can be reasonably assured after the June 1-2 pre-draft camp that he'll be a first-rounder, his best option would be to withdraw from the draft and play for State next season. He can pull his name out up to a week before the draft and still return to NCSU." - Caulton Tudor 3/24/2004

Quote of the Day: Herb Sendek - "We were disappointed in the outcome, and we still very much would have liked to be alive. But it was a great season and our guys did accomplish a great deal. We took another step forward with our program, and I don't think one game can diminish what you did along the way."

If you're Hodge, why not at least test the market? Read More

The most disturbing thing about North Carolina State's collapse Sunday wasn't the officiating (although Marcus Melvin should not have been whistled for an intentional foul), but the Wolfpack's horrible final possession. Read More

Artist Martin Handford really had something when he came up with the best-selling puzzle-book "Where's Waldo?" in the late 1980s. Handford, trying to make Waldo near-invisible among ordinary looking people and settings, drew his main character wearing red and white horizontal stripes. He must have known that striped-men are damn near impossible to track down. Read More
