Dead at the age of 78. I would have never been able to guess his age. Since to me, he's one of those guys that's looked like he was in his mid to late '50s for past 40 years.

An absolute trailblazer in the world of college hoops. Opened the door for a lot of African Americans in the sport. Rest in power, sir.

Fuck, man! I just turned on ESPN radio, to listen to LeBatard, and it was literally the first thing I heard.

First thing I heard this morning too. Thompson just had such a huge aura around him, and he made Georgetown basketball unapologetically black. RIP.
