Austin 'won fight like a champion'

System can work - ask Carrawell
        ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — He comes straight from the sad, urban American cliche of guns, drugs and single-parent families. Chris Carrawell, who is 21 years old, saw his father for the first time three weeks ago. The man was in the team hotel at the ACC Tournament. He just showed up.

Duke: A team for the ages?
