OTHERS OF NOTE: Jon Brockman, Washington; Henk Norel, DKV Joventut (Spain); Leo Lyons, Missouri; Alade Aminu, Georgia Tech; Ahmad Nivins, St. Joseph's; Robert Dozier, Memphis.
KEEP AN EYE ON: Brandon Costner, N.C. State. The junior was up and down throughout his career in Raleigh, but never blossomed as the Wolfpack had hoped. He can pass and shoot, with three-point range, but occasionally fell too much in love with the dribble, and it hurt him. He can guard people in the post--"he's not starting any fights in there but he's not backing off, either," said a coach who's worked extensively with Costner in the past two years. Costner isn't a great athlete, but he can get things done in the paint--if he'll just stay in the paint. One of those guys that may not get drafted, but may be a huge free agent surprise if it all ever comes together for him.
