Green Wave pitcher grabs national spotlight

Tulane sophomore Brian Bogusevic was named National Pitcher of the Week by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association (NCBWA).

Bogusevic is the fourth Conference USA player this season to be named National Player of the Week, according to an announcement from the organization.

The southpaw earned the award after tossing a career-best 8 and two-thirds shutout innings in a 1-0 Green Wave win last week at then-No. 2 LSU.

Bogusevic joins Memphis pitcher Derek Hankins, Southern Miss outfielder Ryan Frith and Southern Miss pitcher Cliff Russum in earning the national honor this season.

C-USA has had a total of 38 players receive National Player of the Week recognition from the NCBWA in the league’s nine seasons.

Hoops honcho Hodge hangs tight at State

RALEIGH — Julius Hodge announced Wednesday that he will stay at North Carolina State for his senior year, choosing not to enter the NBA Draft.

Hodge, the reigning Atlantic Coast Conference player of the year and second-team All-American, led the Wolfpack to a second-place regular-season finish in the ACC and a third straight trip to the NCAA Tournament.

The 6-foot-7 swingman cited his desire to win a conference championship and fulfill a promise to his mother to earn a degree as reasons for staying.

Hodge also said his decision to stay at N.C. State wasn't influenced by analysts' projections of his pro potential.

"One more year of ACC basketball isn't going to hurt," he said. "I was pretty confident if I left this year I would be in a pretty good position."

Hodge led the ACC in field-goal percentage (51.3) and was second in scoring (18.6) this season.
