He died in a bus crash yesterday

Former North Carolina State Wolfpack star Lorenzo Charles killed in bus accident - ESPN

I met him several years ago at a basketball camp in Raleigh and got his autograph. That dunk will forever live on.

He broke the heart of the Phi Slama Jama and broke mine too. Too bad he was cut short.

I distinctly remember the play. I was so horrified. I kept hoping that the officials would find NC State had done something wrong or illegal. But no, the play was ruled legitimate. The Cougars were a better team and should have won the championship that night but it wasn't meant to be. Alas, memories can last a long time and hopefully the memory of Lorenzo Charles will not fade. Even though I was a rabid UH fan back then I will always remember that play, and Charles.

Guy Lewis went to that 4 corner prevent offense which is what really did Phi Slamma Jamma in.
Charles made a heads up play though...
