Then came a torn ACL in his other knee in the first game of his senior season.A pair of torn ACLs meant it would be awfully difficult for the athletic, high-motor Giles to be taken first overall on Junne 22.dddddddddddd Then came yet another red flag when Duke announced that Giles would have another procedure, termed minor, on his left knee, the one he injured as a sophomore.That was Oct. 3, and the timetable, according to the school, was supposed to be six weeks.
