20th Anniversary of Loyola Marymount’s 1989-90 Elite Eight Basketball Team


On Saturday, January 30th, our neighbors to the south at Loyola Marymount University will celebrate the 20th Anniversary of its 1989-90 Elite Eight Men’s Basketball team with a special ceremony honoring the team at halftime of the Lions men’s basketball game vs. Saint Mary’s. If you were not around to remember this special team and Hank Gathers, click here for a short video on the team.

Hank Gathers

The 1989-90 LMU Lions finished 26-6, led the nation in scoring at 122 pts. a game (the NCAA record to this day), and persevered through tragedy after their leader, Hank Gathers, passed away just days before the NCAA Tournament.

Prior to the game this Saturday, the 1989-90 team will be in attendance at the LMU Athletics’ tent during the Tailgate Party on Hannon Field (from 5-7PM).

7PM tip off at Gersten Pavilion, aka “Hank’s House.”
