RALEIGH, N.C. — N.C. State Director of Athletics Lee Fowler was named the
Person of the Week

Fowler received the honor after serving as the Chairman of the 2002 NCAA men's basketball committee, which selects the field of 65 teams that will compete in the annual NCAA men's basketball tournament.
According to the Web site, Fowler was selected because "He's the man at the center of a storm surrounding picks, placement and the spring's biggest sports event."
