    Food for thought. I KNOW and have seen in person lbeck and know he is an adult. Plus after conversing with the others, I KNOW they are adults also, because of the people they have mentioned they are acquaintences of.

    And #1, thought you were ignorning me.
    #2, why do you have to take it to a perverted level?

    You are sad sad person kato.

    Fortunately since I actually have a life I will NEVER catch up with your MANY posts (about 99%) about Carolina! Its pretty sad 903 when you pull for the team you hate to lose more than you pull for your own team to win! You are just young and stup!d! Typical Duke fan!

    Food for thought:

    Those creeps that Chris Hansen/Dateline NBC keep catching...

    always seem to struggle with "age determination".

    Still ignoring me I see.

    And I am still waiting on the proof that I pick fights with teenagers. And before you respond with your normal items that you have saved from over a year ago. Please clarify how you know the ages of the folks I was having a discussion with on HSOT? And just so you know, I know for a fact they were adults.

    A bit of advice, todd...

    just don't go to any high school games with the loser...

    as he has been known to pick fights with teenagers.

    I am not sure what that has to do with anything. I attend basketball games all the time. I have been to Southeast Raleigh and Garner and to the HSOT as well as AAU in Faytteville.

    So not sure what your point is.

    Defensive stopping. Something State fan is unfamiliar with:

    http://blogs.newsobserver.com/accnow/three-points-defending-the-3-5-minutes-to-forget-and-praise-for-howellThree Points from N.C. State's 98-85 loss at Duke:
    1) Defending the 3
    Duke made 10 3-pointers in the first half, four more than it had in the entire first game against N.C. State. Seth Curry and Quinn Cook made four 3-pointers each and Rasheed Sulaimon added two.
    Duke outscored N.C. State 30-3 from the 3-point line in the first half to take a 58-37 lead. Of the 10 3s, on 17 attempts, nine came at the expense of one of N.C State's three freshmen on defense, seven were uncontested and two were in transition.

    Nothing wrong with a little toughness on the court. Sorry McAdooDoo is flopping too hard and you're not familiar with toughness.

    Here's an idea, read Jay Bilas' new book: Toughness.

    Looks to me like his attitude has assisted in his success.

    Man, just think if he was white what you would say Toddler. Lucky your racist comments were deleted on the HSOT board.

    The award recognizes a unique group of men's college basketball student-athletes who have made outstanding contributions in the areas of volunteerism and civic involvement including building homes for the elderly, leading basketball clinics, reading to students and working with children with hearing disabilities.

    Thornton has been a steady contributor on the court for the Blue Devils. Widely recognized as a terrific defender and strong leader he has also made an outstanding impact in the community.

    In addition to participating in the Read with the Blue Devils program and with the Duke Children's Hospital, Thornton also began working the SONS (Students Of New Success) program at CC Spaulding Elementary School this fall. This unique program, which was created to both educate and mentor at-risk males, is integrated into the educational curricula for third through fifth grades. The program also provides students with historic cultural lessons, tutoring and test preparation as well as a safe place for them to share and receive guidance for their struggles at home and in the community. Through the program, Thornton has developed strong relationships with the students and become a positive male role model as well as someone they look up to, rely on, and confide in.

    For more information on Thornton's involvement in the program check out this blog post from Duke Blue Planet - Ty's New Friends - http://blog.dukeblueplanet.com/2013/01/tys-new-friends/.

    Joining Thornton on the 2013 Allstate NABC Division I Good Works Team are Langston Galloway (Saint Joseph's), Jakob Gollon (Mercer), John Mann (Belmont) and Peyton Silva (Louisville)
