Not only did your best young big man depart for the NBA your much hated down the road rival got all three of its players back in the fold for yet another run at a National Championship.

Bummer, dudes.

J.J. Hickson decided to stay in the draft and everybody in Raleigh was quite nice about it.

"After going through several workouts with NBA teams, J.J. received very positive feedback and feels this is a great opportunity for him to be drafted," Lowe said. "He had a great season with us last year, and he will always be a part of our Wolfpack family. We are very happy for him and his family."

ESPN’s Andy Katz makes a good point: “NC State may have better chemistry: That might not be fair, but it will be interesting to see if the Wolfpack -- especially Ben McCauley and Brandon Costner -- go back to playing more balanced basketball now that J.J. Hickson is gone after one season.”

As you may recall, at the end of the 2006-2007, N.C. State was on a major roll through the ACC tourney and on into the Big Dance. They got there with some phenomenal play from their frontcourt and that is why they were picked third in the ACC in pre-season polls only to collapse to 15-16 (4-12 in the ACC).

Maybe Wolf Karma has improved?
