Watch Hank Gathers' nephew hit a game-winning buzzer-beater
MAR 14, 2014 5:46p ET
Hank Gathers was one of the best college basketball players in the country when he collapsed during a game on March 4, 1990 and died 101 minutes later.
We're guessing the former Loyola-Marymount star would be pretty proud of his nephew, Jordan Gathers, right now.
Jordan Gathers is a junior guard at St. Bonaventure and on Friday he hit what his coach called, "probably one of the biggest shots in St. Bonaventure history."
Watch as his 3-point buzzer-beater knocked St. Louis, the No. 1 seed, out of the Atlantic 10 tournament in the quarterfinals.
Check out what it looked like from courtside:
Jordan Gathers, who was 10 years old when he first saw the footage of his uncle collapsing to the floor, had this to say about Hank Gathers, via CBS Sports:
"When people ask me and I tell them, I feel as though his spirit is still alive, he's still around," Gather said. "When I'm out there on the court, I feel he's still here. Everyone I talk to loved my uncle. To be able to have the name, I'm proud of it."
Jordan Gathers' twitter handle is @44LivesOn, a tribute to his uncle who wore the No. 44.
St. Bonaventure will play Saint Joseph's in the semifinals Saturday.
