Following NC State's upset of #1 and undefeated Duke, the students rushed the court. A fan in a wheelchair was knocked down in the chaos, NC State player CJ Leslie cleared a spot around the fallen fan and held him up until his wheelchair could be located.

(The video the guy in the wheelchair took with his phone is pretty nuts too)

This story made me feel good.  Got tickets for the NFC championship game this coming Sunday...that made me feel good, too.

This story made me feel good in a better (and certainly less expensive) way.

Thanks for posting.

Great story and all, but you have to wonder what a dude in a wheel chair is doing rushing the court in the first place. Now, if he called Tom Kruse and were in the Hoveround it would be a completely different story.
