Degand out for the season

NC State head men's basketball coach Sidney Lowe has announced that sophomore point guard Farnold Degand will miss the remainder of the 2007-08 season after tearing his ACL last night in the win over Cincinnati. Degand will undergo surgery at a later date.

The 6-4, 178 native of Boston has started all 10 games for the Wolfpack at the point this season, averaging 6.9 points, 3.2 rebounds and 28.6 minutes per game. He also led the team in assists (2.9 per game) and three-point shooting (.500, 8-16). Degand sat out last season after transferring from Iowa State, where he redshirted the 2005-06 campaign.

"This is a really tough break for Farnold individually and for our team collectively," Lowe said Monday morning. "After not being able to play for two years, he was really enjoying being back on the court. He will definitely have the support of his teammates and the coaching staff throughout the rehabilitation process."
