Five questions with former NC State great Scott Wood
The level of basketball doesn’t matter, neither does the continent, Scott Wood makes 3-pointers. That’s what he does.
In his first professional season in the United States, Wood made 166 3s for the Santa Cruz Warriors in the NBA D-League and won the league’s 3-point contest during its all-star break.
Wood, N.C. State’s all-time leader in 3-pointers, spent his first three years out of college with Murcia in the ACB league in Spain and made 40.3 percent (242 of 600) of his 3s.
The 6-6 wing from Marion, Ind. averaged 3.3 3-pointers per game for the Warriors this season, third-best in the D-League, and 14.0 points per game.
Wood, who helped N.C. State reach the NCAA tournament in 2012 and ‘13, is back in Raleigh for part of the summer. Always a favorite of the local media for his honesty, Wood recently sat down with the N&O’s Joe Giglio for five questions.
