Here's a Charlotte Observer profile of Monte Towe, who's returning to Raleigh to coach New Orleans against N.C. State tonight.

For those of you too young to remember, Towe was the point guard on State's 1974 national championship team, the guy feeding David Thompson the old alley-oop.

Towe said aside from his parents, the late N.C. State coach Norm Sloan was the most influential person in his life.

"I miss him," Towe said. "I would have loved to take that team out on the floor and look up at him in the stands."
