Remembering Hank Gathers

Last night Loyola Marymount honored the 20th anniversary of the high-flying 1990 team that lost star Hank Gathers and made a magical run to the Elite Eight of the NCAA tournament.

From Bill Plaschke of the Los Angeles Times:

After their halftime ceremony Saturday, the former players put their hands together for another cheer, while in the stands, their team trailing by 15 points but hope never lost, the fans kept chanting, now and forever.

"This is Hank's House! This is Hank's House!"

Plaschke also writes that Gathers, who collapsed and died during a WCC tournament game, will be the subject of an upcoming book, "Heart of a Lion" by Kyle Keiderling.
