Lorenzo Charles, March Madness Hero And Hawks Draft Pick, Dead At 47

Lorenzo Charles died Monday in a bus accident. He's best known for throwing down the dunk that gave the N.C. State Wolfpack the 1983 national championship, but he was also selected by the Atlanta Hawks in the 1985 NBA Draft, sticking around for a year before going on to play internationally.
