Noel ready to begin his pro journey

David Noel discovered his fate the same way millions of other NBA fans found out about it. He saw it on television. The Milwaukee Bucks, who selected him in Wednesday night's NBA Draft, couldn't get in touch with him at the Durham hotel where he was watching the draft. Neither could his agent. "I was either expecting to hear from them or my agent," said Noel. "They were trying to call, but my lines were tied up. It was nerve-racking, but once they called my name, I just put my head down and started to cry." Noel wept tears of joy. (Durham Herald-Sun)
