Two North Carolina State players won't return to the Wolfpack for their senior seasons.
Coach Sidney Lowe said Monday that Brandon Costner will enter
the NBA draft pool while fellow redshirt junior Trevor Ferguson is
ending his basketball career.
Costner, a forward, averaged nearly 13 points and six rebounds
in three seasons with N.C. State, and was the Wolfpack's leading
scorer this season with a 13.6-point average. The school said he
will earn a degree in communications in May.
Ferguson sat out the 2005-06 season after transferring from
Pittsburgh and averaged nearly four points in 52 career games,
hitting 37 percent of his 3-pointers. He said he will earn his
degree in science, technology and society this summer.
