Legendary basketball coach Rollie Massimino has died at the age of 82.
Throughout his career, he won more than 800 games and led Villanova’s men’s basketball squad to the national title in 1985.
According to ESPN, Massimino had been battling lung cancer and died at his home in Florida.
Massimino was best-known for leading an eighth-seeded Villanova team to an improbable national title, beating the No. 1 seed Georgetown and Patrick Ewing in the championship game.
Despite his age, he coached up until this past season at Division II Keiser University in West Palm Beach, Florida, where he had been coaching since 2006.
After racking up nearly 300 victories while at Northwood/Keiser, Massimino finished with a career record of 816-462.
