When Todd Withers is asked where he played college basketball, and he replies “Queens,” it’s common for him to have to clarify that’s the college in Charlotte, not the borough in New York City.

Withers, who grew up in Greensboro, averaged 13.6 points and eight rebounds last season. He was a strong shooter, making 50 percent from the field and 40 percent from the college 3-point line.

Withers, a 6-8 guard-forward, led Queens to the Division II Final Four in March. Then, he spent time at the IMG Academy training for a shot at professional basketball somewhere.

Monday’s workout with the Charlotte Hornets was his fourth with an NBA team, following auditions with the Oklahoma City Thunder, Sacramento Kings and Brooklyn Nets. So his invitation from the Hornets was more than a courtesy to a kid from a local school.
