Hodge Watch
Among those who could benefit by waiting a year... Julius Hodge, junior, guard, N.C. State. Hodge was the ACC's best player this season, but he's thin (6-6, 191) and lacks a defined position. Is he a point or a wing? - TSN's Mike DeCourcy 4/6/2004

Rivers Watch
"If the Chargers think Manning is better, they are not trading anything to pass him up. They can get their guy Rivers for less money and get picks. But collectively, most teams see Manning as the No. 1 guy." - Giants GM Ernie Accorsi - 4/9/2004

Quote of the Day: "He's (Marcus Melvin) been a special player for us. I can remember writing him notes, whispering in his ear, yelling in his other ear that rebounding had to be more prevalent in his game. This past year he really took that to heart; he clearly was our best rebounder and he also was a very underrated defensive player. The way he helped off the ball and the way he covered for his teammates really went unnoticed by the casual observer." - NC State head coach Herb Sendek
