Former Pack Star Wood Signs Pro Contract
Aug. 11, 2013
Scott Wood, the most prolific 3-point shooter in NC State men's basketball history, has signed a contract with UCAM Murcia in Spain. Wood, a native of Marion, Ind., spent this past summer playing on the Los Angeles Clippers' summer league team.
The 6-6 Wood finished his career in Raleigh as NC State's all-time leader with 334 made 3-pointers. He also holds the school record for games started in a career (136). Wood scored 1,467 career points for the Wolfpack, ranking 18th in school history.
Wood was at his best as a senior in 2012-13, posting career highs in points per game (12.6), field goal percentage (.436) and 3-point percentage (.441). He also shot 91.4 percent at the foul line and finished his career as an 88.6 percent free throw shooter.
During Wood's four years in the NC State program, the Wolfpack won 83 games, including 48 during his final two seasons playing for head coach Mark Gottfried. NCSU earned a berth in the NCAA Tournament in those two Gottfried-led seasons.
Along with Lorenzo Brown (Minnesota Timberwolves), C.J Leslie (New York Knicks) and Richard Howell (BCM Gravelines Dunkerque), Wood becomes the fourth Pack player from the 2012-13 roster to be selected by a professional team.
UCAM Murcia plays in Spain's Liga Endesa, which is the top-tier league in Spain. The franchise was promoted to the top league in 2011 after posting a 30-5 record during the 2010-11 season.
