Good story in the Durham Herald-Sun about Miami forward Anthony King. The catch (and I didn't know this): King was a standout at Southern High School.

King was disappointed he didn't end up at an ACC school when he signed with Miami last year. After a dismal freshman year, he almost transferred. Now here he is, the ACC record holder for blocked shots in a single game.

King gives credit for his work ethic to his brother James, "who died at age 26 while trying out for a German professional team."

"My brother James, he could play some ball- he was always playing hard no matter what," King told the Herald-Sun.
