NC State's Wood, Kastanek To Participate In State Farm 3-Point Championships
APRIL 4, 2013
RALEIGH - Two of NC State's most prolific long-range shooters, Scott Wood and Marissa Kastanek, will compete in the 25th annual State Farm Slam Dunk & 3-Point Championships tonight from Georgia Tech's McCamish Pavilion. The event will be aired live on ESPN at 7 p.m.
During his four-year career, Wood hit a program-best 334 3-pointers, eclipsing the mark previously held by Rodney Monroe (1988-91). This season, Wood's 44.1 3-point field goal percentage and his 3.0 3-point field goals made per game led the ACC. Wood's 41.3 career 3-point field goal percentage is seventh best in school history. His 1,467 career points are the 18th most in program history.
In the ACC Tournament, Wood hit a career-high seven 3-pointers in the Pack's quarterfinal win over Virginia, the most by an NC State player in a tournament game. It also tied for the fourth-most 3-pointers made by a player in a tournament contest.
This season, Kastanek made a career-high 69 3-pointers during her senior season. Her 240 career three-pointers ranks second in school history and is 11th in ACC history.
Kastanek concluded her Wolfpack career with 1,655 career points, the eighth-highest total in program history. She was a first team Academic All-American and first team All-ACC selection as a senior.
