LMU Athletics is honoring Hank Gathers for his significant contributions to Loyola Marymount University by constructing a statue in his likeness for the 30th Anniversary of the '89-'90 basketball team.

From Craig Pintens,

LMU Athletic Director

The story of Hank Gathers and the 1989-90 LMU basketball team is one of the greatest in sports history. Hank was an extraordinary player, a formidable opponent and a fierce competitor who elevated LMU basketball to unprecedented heights. We also celebrate who Hank was off the court—dedicated to his family, loyal to his teammates and committed to his education at LMU. We are pleased to partner with the Gathers family to honor Hank's enduring legacy with a statue, so that all who visit the bluff may be inspired by the indelible mark he left on LMU.
