1990: Loyola Marymount University basketball forward Hank Gathers collapses during a West Coast Conference Tournament game and dies. The 23-year-old had earlier collapsed during a game in December 1989 and was found to have an abnormal heartbeat. An autopsy found that he suffered from a heart-muscle disorder, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. Gathers is seen here at the Sportscasters Camps of America earlier in 1990.
