DJ Horne

DJ Burns understandably received all the attention during NC State's improbable run to the Final Four but DJ Horne has arguably been the best player on the team for most of the season.

Having transferred from Arizona State for his final year of college eligibility, Horne took his game to the next level in his home state. He averaged a career-high 16.8 points per game while hitting an impressive 40.9% of his threes while making 2.6 per game. He had the best season of his collegiate career in terms of volume and efficiency as a scorer.

The most impressive part about Horne was his willingness to adapt his game depending on what his team needed at the time. In the ACC Tournament final, he took the reins and scored at will, putting up 29 points. In the first two rounds of the NCAA Tournament, he took more of a playmaking role as DJ Burns and Mohamed Diarra were being effective. He provided a steady hand on the offensive end, regularly taking on the role of shot creation for himself and others.

Regardless of where his career goes from here, DJ Horne will be remembered very fondly by Wolfpack fans.
