Degand, Ferguson uncertain for Wake

N.C. State coach Sidney Lowe said Monday morning that he hasn't decided whether junior guards Farnold Degand and Trevor Ferguson will play Wednesday against Wake Forest.

Degand and Ferguson missed Sunday's 91-87 overtime loss at Virginia Tech for violating team academic policy.

"I haven’t decided yet (whether they will play)," Lowe said during the ACC coaches' teleconference. "It’s something I’ve got to take a look at. First and foremost, those guys, everybody needs to hold up their end of the bargain, academically and rule wise, everything. And playing on the floor. And we’ll have to see."

Ferguson is averaging 5.8 points and Degand 4.9 points per game.
