As the shock of Tom Emma's suicide sinks in, coaches and teammates react.  Here are comments from Coach K and Mark Alarie, along with some new links.

Coach K: "The Duke basketball family is deeply saddened to hear of the tragic passing of Tom Emma. He was a good man and fine representative of Duke University. Our hearts go out to his family and friends. He will be missed."

Alarie: “It’s really come as a shock to everybody. No inkling that there was a problem with depression or any issues like that. So it’s really a shocker...He just had a never-say-die, never-give-up attitude when he was on the floor, and we all respected him and admired him for that, and that’s why he was a captain, because he had that attitude, that kind of fight and competitiveness in him. He was a great teammate.”
