— North Carolina State center Jordan Collins fractured the fourth metacarpel on his left hand during Tuesday's basketball practice. He will wear a functional splint for the next six weeks but should still be able to practice.

Collins averaged 8.4 minutes per game in 30 games last season. The 6-10, 254 Hyattsville, Md., native has lost more than 20 pounds since last season.
