Mr. Weitsman. You have a phone call on line one.

Not sure if this was the last article on this subject.


Article from March 2.

Once he played at Portsmouth, he can't come back.

He gone.

Not doubting you, but that is dumb if true. Smith, from NC State, went through the draft combine in Chicago and just announced he will be returning to college.

Regardless of what the answer is, he has to 11:59 tonight to withdraw.

No idea what Cole was thinking at all. I always thought it was an odd decision.
Tarquavian Smith from NC State was projected as a potential first rounder and he’s still returning to college. Cole won’t be drafted at all.

He just worked out with the Lakers. The Lakers don’t have a draft pick. Possible fee agent. They desperately need shooters.

And he’s fine playing overseas.

Did Swider get a degree from Nova before transferring? Did he get a degree from Syracuse?

He had a chance to stockpile valuable education... Did he take advantage?

He got his undergrad degree here as far as I know. He did not get his degree in 3 years at Nova

Thanks for the answer.

With summer school every year, including before school even starts for most freshman, as well as needing a full load of classes to remain eligible, three year degrees are easy to obtain.

It would have made a lot of sense to get a undergrad degree at Nova and a one year Masters here if he was interested in doing so.

Yea I remember an interview after he transferred here where he said one of the disappointing things about leaving Nova after 3 years is that he didn’t graduate.

I'm sure he was realistic about his NBA chances and knew it was a relative long-shot. He's 23 years old. I have to imagine he's totally done playing for free. He'll do great in Europe.
Exactly. Some guys want to move on with life at a certain point even if it's not to the NBA. I'm not sure why that's so difficult.
