Social Media Tributes
I was just a kid at the Devaney when I first saw him play: I was immediately mesmerized by his game. He was truly my first favorite basketball player, the one who I pretended to be when shooting hoops on my snow-covered driveway court in Lincoln. What a magical player.
Sad to hear this news. Andre was a legend and I remember his ability to score from the post. My best memory was getting in a pickup game with him in the coliseum. I was 15 and really nervous, he was a great teammate for me that day.
Condolences. Went to a overnight camp he worked in elementary. He was in charge of keeping campers in line in the dorm. If anyone acted up he said he would hold them out the dorm windows by the ankles. No one did cuz legend had it he did at a previous camp. Great player!
