NC State's Dennis Smith Jr. fully recovered, ready to go

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) Dennis Smith Jr. sure looks ready.

North Carolina State's prized freshman point guard is pushing through a workout in the practice gym on a hot July afternoon, and there's no sign of the knee injury that defined his past year.

He's sprinting along the baseline to bury a catch-and-shoot corner 3-pointer. He's dribbling between chairs and stutter-stepping his way to a pull-up jumper. He's launching himself at the rim for a dunk off the dribble.
