The article focuses on college basketball player J.J. Redick of Duke University in Durham, North Carolina. There are several reasons why, after almost four seasons wearing a Duke uniform, Redick deserves the affection of college basketball fans. He's not perfect. Though he is the National Collegiate Athletic Association's career leader in free throw percentage (.921), he misses one every so often these days. He is loyal. After Redick averaged 21.8 points and became a first-team All-American as a junior, one Division I coach was savagely critical of Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski for not encouraging Redick to enter the draft. He comes from a great family, and is not on steroids. INSET: This is . . . J.J. Redick.
