Lucky Number 13 on the Duke Blue Devils. From Lancaster, PA. Father was a player at Duke. Walked-on in Durham his first year as a member of Duke’s “Selected Six” recruiting class. He’s be the do-it-all guy for Coach K. Good medium-range shooter, rebounds and passes extremely well. He’s an intangible guy and he’ll be on scholarship for three years. High school teammates Matt Walsh (Florida) and Ted Skuchas (Vanderbilt) are Division I players. Often gets nosebleeds during games.
As Lee Melchionni walked out to wave to his fans on senior night at Cameron Indoor Stadium, he reverently got on his hands and knees and kissed the basketball court.
