Farewell, Lorenzo Charles

RIP Lorenzo Charles. I'm greatly saddened to read of his death. I so well remember NCSU's run in the 1983 NCAA tournament. That was right after my husband had accepted a job at NCSU so we watched their amazing cardiac-inducing journey through the tournament with a sense of destiny. It seemed like fate that the school where he would soon be employed would win so many unlikely victories. And who can forget that last shot and then the celebration afterward? It was the most amazing tournament final ever.
