IN MEMORY OF: Hank Gathers (February 11, 1967 - March 4, 1990)
BY: Bo Kimble
GESTURE: After his teammate and friend collapsed and died on the court prior to the NCAA Tournament, Kimble led Loyola Marymount to an improbable run to the Elite Eight. In honor of Gathers, Kimble shot his first free throw of each game left-handed (Gathers was right-handed but often shot FTs lefty).
COMPLEX SAYS: Don't get it confused: Bron Bron's lefty experiment was just to hype an injury.
