He was an icon here locally and I grew up in high school listening to him on the radio. He used to host the afternoon show on 980 so I would get back from high school and listen to him and then the Sports Reporters. He also was an analyst for Westwood One for many of their games on the NCAA Tournament. He was just a good guy.
Junior Feinstein has a lot of good stories about him and Maryland. Yeah, he was the reason why Georgetown didn't play Maryland for years, but he also built up a program at Georgetown which was dominant throughout the 80's and 90's.
A true legend indeed. RIP Big John.
He put Georgetown on the basketball map. RIP to one of the great ones.
Even thought I'm a Pittsburgh sports fan I was a bandwagon Hoya fan in the 80s since they were always and the Pitt team wasn't. He coached so many great players. Truly one of the great coaches ever in basketball.
