    Damn - 2020 is turning out to be a crappy year for Basketball fans.


    from espn.com:

    Legendary college basketball coach Eddie Sutton, who won more than 800 games and was the first coach to take four different schools to the NCAA men's basketball tournament, died Saturday, his family said in a statement. He was 84.

    Sutton died of natural causes at his home in South Tulsa, Oklahoma, and was surrounded by family, according to the statement.

    Less than two months ago, Sutton was informed that he'd be a member of the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame 2020 class. In its statement, the Sutton family said his inclusion in the Hall "was an honor and a tribute to the great players he coached and outstanding assistant coaches that worked for him." Sutton had been a finalist on five previous occasions.

    He will be posthumously inducted in August, as will Los Angeles Lakers great Kobe Bryant.
