Two of my favorite, oft overlooked Duke players. What are they doing these days?

I talked to Tony last fall for an article. He was getting ready to leave for an overseas-coaching job, South Korea I believe. Haven't been able to reach TH the last couple of times I've tried. I believe he's still in the Dallas area.

Thanks. I found this from the Wikipedia site:

NBA superstar Grant Hill is Lang's best friend and was his teammate/roommate at Duke. Nickname at Duke, "Anchovio." Very impressive college career, but best known for improbable shot made over his outstretched hands in Duke/Arkansas title game.

Now, I agree that he is friends with Grant. I did NOT know his knickname was Anchovio. And, while it is a memory that still burns, the shot over Lang's outstretched arm in '94 comes second to me. The first image of Lang that comes to me is his reaction after Laettner hit the big shot against Kentucky. Lang was under the basket. As soon as the ball went in, he threw his fist in a downward direction and fell to the floor in joy/relief. It was awesome.

This blurb made me go to youtube to see the reaction you described. In order to find a video of "The Shot," (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AY-iq58_oz4) I searched for "laettner." My search turned up some interesting results, including a parody of "The Shot" by the late Chris Farley (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bPMo14XTTvE) and a video that features Christian lip-synching with Naughty by Nature (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mR2c5-XbXfc). Good stuff. (Oh, and I apologize for the slight threadjack. Best of luck finding info on Antonio and Thomas.)
