Rick Lewis, the father of NC State freshman point guard Tyler Lewis, told the Raleigh News & Observer on Friday that some Duke fans taunted his son about the death of his grandmother during the game Thursday. Margie Lewis, who passed away at age 83, was Rick's mother.
NC State lost 98-85 at No. 4-ranked Duke, but the game has become overshadowed by the accusations of Lewis and Wolfpack players over what happened to Lewis, who lost his grandmother a week ago Friday. Lewis made his first start of the season in place of the injured Lorenzo Brown and had 13 points, six assists and zero turnovers in 39 minutes.
The former McDonald's All-American has tallied 29 points, 11 assists and just one turnover against the top two teams in the ACC - Duke and Miami.
