Synopsis: On March 4th, 1990 Hank Gathers, the leading candidate for college basketball's player of the year award, fell to the court at Gersten Pavilion on the campus of Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles. Within minutes the man who had led the nation in scoring and rebounding as a junior, and who had proudly boasted of being the strongest man alive, was dead. Heart of a Lion is the story of Hank Gathers, a young man who dared to dream while growing up in "the worst slum in America." "Hank Gathers was an extraordinary player. He was a young man who dared to dream in a place where dreams go to die. Hank's dream ended tragically but his teammates carried on in his honor. Together they provided one of the greatest stories in NCAA tournament history. Hank has been gone 20 years but, the dream is alive." -Jim Nantz, CBS Sports. "This is not just another basketball book. Be good to yourself, and buy it." -Bob Kuska. National publicity. M.Kahn Associates. 805-969-8555. Milton@miltonkahnpr.com.
