Bo Kimble was a monster in 1990. His Loyola Marymount team came into the tournament averaging 124 points a game. It’s safe to say UNLV might have gone down if only Hank Gathers survived. My oldest, Mizzo Jr. was born in December a preemie at 1 pound, 14 ounces–so his Mother and I were fixtures in the Christiana Hospital NICU (one of the best in the nation) ward to feed him every day and obviously check on his progress. At that size, you could see the food go through him. Scary, but trust he’s a full grown rock head now and truly doesn’t surprise me with anything he does. So I’m feeding Mike and LMU vs. New Mexico State just so happened to be on the tube. I’d actually saw Hank Gathers collapse after a dunk live on (I’ll never forget seeing his aunt scream “Help my baby”) TV, March 4th, 1990 (WCC tournament semi-final against Portland), so despite being a Michigan fan, LMU was the team I most wanted to see cut ‘em down. Bo was a scoring machine in games Hank missed during the year. I think he scored 50 five or six games in a row so his scoring binges weren’t shocking. Bo went off for 45 against state in a 111-92 win. He had four fouls at halftime and didn’t foul out. I’ll never forget that game because I knew I was seeing something special. Dammit if they didn’t blow out my Michigan squad (the defending champs) 149-115 the next game behind Bo’s 37. Goodness.
