TJ Warren’s NC State Jersey Raised to the Rafters of PNC Arena

Published

on

Former NC State ACC Player of the Year TJ Warren had has jersey raised to the rafters of PNC Arena before NC State’s victory over Wake Forest last night.

Warren was a lottery selection of the Phoenix Suns in the 2014 NBA Draft following a stellar two-year career at NC State. He was just the third player in ACC history to finish the season leading the conference in scoring and field goal percentage on his way to collecting ACC Player of the Year honors from both coaches and media in 2014. His 24.9 points per game average that season is the fifth-highest single season mark in program history. (GoPack)

Ironically, Warren’s #24 jersey that was raised to the rafters, is the 24th jersey honored at NC State.

Athlon released their 2019-20 College Basketball preview, and they predict that NC State’s Men’s Basketball team will finish 5th in the ACC this season.

  1. Duke
  2. Louisville

  13. Wake Forest
  14. Pittsburgh
  15. Virginia Tech

Here’s a rundown of what they had to say about the Wolfpack.

  • Returning 6 of top 7 scorers from last year
  • Redshirt Junior D.J. Funderburk needs to rebound more consistently, and stay out of foul trouble.
  • The version of Senior Markell Johnson that finished the season will be needed for NC State to get back to the NCAA Tournament.
    • Needs to be a consistent leader and scorer.
  • Junior Braxton Beverly needs to figure out a way to run more hot than cold.
  • Consistency from Redshirt Junior Devon Daniels would go a long way.
  • Team should be back in the NCAA Tournament.
  • With a reloading year for Duke, UVA and UNC, Keatts will get few opportunities like this one.
