Former Wolfpack star Charles dies
RALEIGH, N.C. — A tour bus official says former North Carolina State basketball star Lorenzo Charles, who scored the game-winning basket to give the Wolfpack the 1983 national championship, was killed when a bus he was driving crashed in Raleigh.
Charles grabbed an errant 30-foot shot by Dereck Whittenburg and dunked it for the winning basket in the Wolfpack's 54-52 victory over the University of Houston in the NCAA title game in Albuquerque.
NCAA First four will stay in Dayton
INDIANAPOLIS — The NCAA Tournament's opening round will stay in Dayton, Ohio, for at least the next two years.
The NCAA said Monday that the First Four will be played at the University of Dayton in 2012 and 2013.
Last year was the first one for the so-called First Four games in the newly expanded 68-team men's tournament. Two games match the lowest seeds, Nos. 65 through 68, with the winners advancing to play a top seed. The other two games match the last four at-large qualifiers.
