Maverick Rowan came to NC State with some high expectations that he never quite lived up to. He was an okay player but no great shakes. We’d bet like us, most people around the ACC have forgotten him.

That’s not to say that he didn't have his moments and one great one came against Boston College when an alert Rowan cut to the basket, pushed a BC defender slightly and got the ball for an easy buzzer beater to give State a one point win.

His career hasn’t gone very far - he’s been bouncing around the G-League - but for the rest of his life he can talk about how he hit a classic ACC buzzer beater and most of us can only can only dream of it.
