Hank Gathers : 25 years ago, college basketball star died on the court

Hank Gathers died at age 23 on March 4, 1990 — 25 years ago today.

Here is the video of Gathers’ teammate Bo Kimble shooting a free throw left-handed in honor of his friend who died playing the game he loved. Kimble was 3 for 3 left-handed from the line in the NCAA tournament that year, but it was the first one against New Mexico State that everyone remembers the most.
