Pack hoops loses Thomas

Guess there are two ways to look at this, a loss for this years recruiting class, or a bonus in next years....

Pack's Thomas to miss hoops season

N.C. State freshman Johnny Thomas will miss the upcoming basketball season after undergoing knee surgery last week, N.C. State announced today.

Thomas underwent diagnostic arthroscopic surgery last week and will have more surgery at a later date.

Thomas, a 6-5 guard/forward from Morehead City, suffered the injury last week.

"It's a tough break for Johnny and really a tough break for our team," State coach Sidney Lowe said in a statement. "We were confident that Johnny was going to contribute this season. He will still be involved in everything we do as he goes though his rehab, and hopefully all goes well and he will be ready to go next season."
