Carrawell Clarification

At some point during yesterday's telecast of the Duke/Princeton game, Dick Vitale commented that Chris Carrawell had "dropped out" of school and would not be getting his degree. From our e-mail and the posts on the board, that comment created a lot of angst and confusion among Duke fans.

We have no idea where he heard that, but Vitale is wrong, and it's unfortunate he blurted it out to a national audience without checking the facts. Chris fully intends to graduate from Duke. He is a couple of classes short of graduating and plans to complete his degree requirements next summer. That has always been expected and is nothing new. Not that it's needed, but Chris has given his word on that, and for anyone who knows his character, that says it all.
