Sorry to read this sad news. RIP Coach. Not a fan of Georgetown at all.

I remember him best for the deflated basketball on his desk. Recruits were told the ball didn't bounce forever and that they had better also focus on getting an education for when the ball stopped bouncing.

I admit to being a begrudging fan of his teams. RIP to one of the best there was.

I watched A LOT of college basketball back in the 80's. I never had cable until about 1984. The game was more pure, with movement, rebounding and defense. Refs called fouls and did not let a player get mugged like today.
