This is also big news here at Purdue, since he was one of the school's best ever players (leading the men's basketball team to its first--and so far only--national championship in 1932). But he lived a long and very accomplished life, so we should all celebrate his life rather than mourn his death.

Indeed, a sad loss, but he lived a full, eventful life and got to touch many, many people and made them better players and better humans. He's probably happy now that he can finally be back with his wife again.

While it was bound to happen... unlike those who know him, us (common folk) just may not know who a guy really is - till he dies. And y'know... he had some great quotes, like this one: "Be quick, but don't hurry".
Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it. -- Ferris Bueller
