Will always remember that night. I came home from studying at Wilson, turned on ESPN and watched in horror as that tragedy played out. Hank and I were the same age, and if seeing a fit, elite athlete suddenly collapse and die on live TV doesn't make you feel mortal, nothing will. RIP Hank.

Almost same here. I was still in high school, but seeing that was heartwrenching. I still feel bad thinking back to that. If I remember correctly, Bo Kimble (sp?) shot free throws left handed in tribute.
