Former N.C. State Star Julius Hodge: Sulaimon Should Get His Duke Degree After They "Used" Him For Basketball

In one of the more shocking stories in college basketball this week, guard Rasheed Sulaimon was dismissed from the Duke program a day after the Blue Devils' loss at Notre Dame. While the specific reasoning for his dismissal is still ambiguous, the story is still a big one within the college basketball community, especially due to the fact that Sulaimon is the first player in Coach K's entire tenure to be kicked out of the program. 

Former N.C. State star Julius Hodge feels bad for Sulaimon, and has advice for the now-former Blue Devils guard. He thinks that the best way to get back at Duke basketball for cutting him loose is to get his Duke degree.
