Sad News From Raleigh

By Theomnipotentq @TheMightyQuinn
I was saddened to hear that Lorenzo Charles, the hero of the 1983 North Carolina State NCAA basketball championship game, was killed in a bus crash in North Carolina yesterday.
I always remembered Lorenzo because he brought some pride to us Brooklyn Tech graduates with his last second dunk that brought the Wolfpack the championship, as he went to my high school and graduated two years after I did. (And he was in the same graduating class, 1981, that Anthony Weiner was in at Tech.)
In his memory, here is the memorable finish to that game, Lorenzo slam dunking in the winner, along with the late Jim Valvano running across the floor looking for players to hug.

Godspeed, Lorenzo.
