Brooklyn native Lorenzo Charles, whose conversion of Dereck Whittenburg’s would-be buzzer beater gave North Carolina State an improbable 54-52 win over heavily favored Houston in the 1983 NCAA Men’s final, was killed earlier today in a Raleigh, NC bus collision. Charles, who achieved all-ACC status in 1984 and ’85, had been driving a bus for NC-based Elite Tours, though his recent duties also included driving for Duke’s lacrosse squad.
