NORTH AUGUSTA, S.C. — Last week at the Peach Jam I got a chance to interview musician Bruce Hornsby, whose son, Keith, is a 6-3 rising senior at Oak Hill (Va.) Academy committed to UNC-Asheville.
UNC-Asheville coach Eddie Biedenbach recruited David Thompson to N.C. State, I was told by my Peach Jam roommate, NYC recruiting expert Tom Konchalski.
“Eddie Biedenbach is a legend of N.C. State basketball,” Hornsby said.
The elder Hornsby, 55, said he played basketball growing up but opted for a career in music instead.
“I played basketball in high school,” he said. “I had an offer to play at Randolph Macon when they were Division 2. Now they’re Division 3. But I told the coach I wanted to play the piano. I think it’s the only time he’s ever been told that.” To read more of this story, click here

The Oheka Castle is the second-largest private residence in the United States and recently hosted the wedding of one of the Jonas Brothers.

It’s pretty bizarre…Steph clearly needs some help and we hope he finds it.
And here’s a spoof that’s equally disturbing…. To read more of this story, click here
