NC State Ranks 32nd in NET Rankings After App St

Published

on

NC State’s Men’s Basketball team beat Appalachian State on Sunday to improve to 10-3, and they moved up to #32 in the updated NET Rankings yesterday.

For comparison, NC State ranked 31st in the 1st NET rankings last year, and finished 34th. Finishing 34th last year, you would have assumed the Wolfpack was in a good position to be an at-large selection for the NCAA Tournament, since the NET Ranking replied the RPI as the evaluation tool of the selection committee. We know how that worked out.

In the 1st NET Rankings of this year the Wolfpack were ranked 50th.

NC State is currently the 4th highest ranked team in the ACC.

ACC Teams in the NET Rankings

8) Duke
14) Louisville
28) FSU
32) NC State
46) Virginia Tech
72) UVA
77) Pitt
83) Syracuse

D.J. Funderburk & Devon Daniels to Go Through NBA Draft Process

Published

on

NC State Head Men’s Basketball Coach Kevin Keatts hopped on a zoom call today with the media, and shared that Redshirt Juniors D.J. Funderburk and Devon Daniels will go through the NBA Draft process.

Obviously, both Daniels and Funderburk will have the ability to return to school. Over the past couple of years, Torin Dorn and Markell Johnson both did the same thing. Players go through the process in order to be seen by NBA scouts, and get feedback from them of what they need to work on to improve their draft stock.

While Funderburk and Daniels both improved this year, I can’t imagine a scenario where either one of them would be drafted this year by an NBA team.

With that being said, both of these guys have been in school 4 years now, and 1 or 2 of them could look to play pro ball now, even if it wasn’t in the NBA.
