    I feel pretty lucky to have seen him play in person in the 80's at the CEC....when i was a kid. One of the greatest college players of that generation, for sure. 25 and 10 to avg for a career in the low post is pretty strong.

    Not only that, but a very talented musician after his basketball career ended. Truly a terrible loss... RIP... :sad1:

    I pray for his wife and four children. The cool thing, he was a more accomplished musician, some say, than he was a basketball player. The way I look at it, despite that he died young, his life should be a celebration. His accomplishments are unique. A superstar in sports and a superstar in music. Go with God, Wayman.
