08:18 AM ET 11.27 | Entering the weekend, N.C. State sophomore forward Thomas de Thaey hinted at some unhappiness after not playing against UNC-Asheville -- coming out of it, he decided to move on. N.C. State coach Mark Gottfried said Monday morning he was supposed to talk with de Thaey about his future on Monday. A few hours later, the school put out a release that said de Thaey informed the coaches on Sunday that he was leaving the team and would pursue a pro career in his native Belgium. ... The day after the Asheville game, de Thaey wrote on his Twitter account, "It's time for a change." Gottfried was asked about de Thaey's Twitter missives on Monday. "He's an older player, a little frustrated, obviously, he hasn't played," Gottfried said. "Sometimes when you read young people's Twitter, it's like Chinese proverbs, like a Rubik's cube."
