Great UK player, Hope all goes well for the family

This is a tremendous loss to the entire Big Blue nation. Those who may have never seen Mel play basketball missed a treat. He's easily among the top 10 players I've watched @ UK in 35 years. I always rooted hardest for him because, if you knew his full life's story, you couldn't help but be impressed of how he got to Kentucky. There were 3 things that contributed in my opinion: Undeniable talent, certainly a non-"bigman on campus persona" and many people deeply wanted Mel to be a success. Everyone loved him. I am indeed very sad as I write this note to his family and many friends.
