Battier Honored

When you stop and think about it, it's a bit surprising that it took this long for Shane Battier to win the Magic Johnson Award since it's given for excellence in both basketball and communication.

He becomes the fourth former Blue Devil to win it, following Grant Hill (twice) Luol Deng and Elton Brand. The trio carved out a Duke bloc from 2004-05 to 2007-08.
