Great program...glad I watched it, tonight (ESPNU). Man that was fun basketball and heartbreaking too.

I'm an LMU alum, although not during the Hank and Bo era, rather 98-02. The part where they mentioned the family's lawsuit against Paul Westhead and the University reminded me of the 98-99 season, when his Mom came to the University for the Pepperdine game and all us fans in the seats at Gersten Pavilion booed her.

Watched this a while ago, great episode. The entire 30 For 30 series has been phenomenal.

edit: did some googlage, found this:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hank_Gathers

lawsuit was dropped at one point, but a sad story for sure.

Just watch the episode, I caught it a couple months ago on the 1st run and it was a very good episode. I don't follow or like Basketball much but I vaguely remember it.

You could google Hank Gathers and Bo Kimble or LMU fast break or Paul Westhead. I'm sure they have clips of the 1990 tournament run on Youtube. They also made a film about Hank Gathers in 92 that should be out there. Most prolific offense in college BB history, IMO.
