If the people he's worked with in

that he is leaving a position he's held

into the game with a lofty 27-and-5

VCU on the other hand needed to

FSN-Last Night Last night Chris Paul put on his :00 Superman cape and went the length of
the floor in four seconds to hit this
improbable game winning hoop against
N.C. State. The winning basket kicked
off a serious Wake celebration, but no
one is partying tonight.

Paul has been suspended for the
first game of the ACC tournament for
anything but an heroic move in last
night's game.

Watch Paul get locked up Julius
Hodge and cheap shot him with a punch
below the belt.

Wake athletic director Ron
Wellman and A-C-C commissioner John
Swofford conferred before announced the
punishment.

Paul released a statement this
afternoon apologizing to Hodge, NC

The boy had apparently taken several
disciplinary notes home and his mother
says she knew it was becoming a
problem, but never anticipated a
suspension.

The school's administrator says
spanking is an option, not a
requirement and adds that it's clearly
written on a statement of cooperation
that must be signed before a student
can enroll. (END VO) (END VO)
