Harry Giles: "Almost the whole Duke staff was at my game last week; Coach K, Coach Capel, Coach Scheyer and Coach James, and then Coach Williams and Coach Davis from UNC were at the same game so that was fun to have them there.

The slender point guard and North Carolina native quickly has become a hot name on the regional high-major circuit, with schools outside the region anxious to become more involved as well.

Inside Carolina traveled to the school to get a better understanding of Giles as a person, player and leader. (Inside Carolina)
