The passing of NC State hero Lorenzo Charles shocked all of us that remember that night in Albuquerque. Charles slammed home the game-winning basket on a shot taken by teammate Dereck Whittenburg that came up short of the rim. In all of the mayhem the late Jim Valvano in euphoric disbelief ran frantically looking for someone to hug.
I think he finally found the guy he was looking for.
While the summer months are all about fun, the sports world has suffered some of its greatest tragedies during this time.
