The son of former Loyola Marymount basketball star Hank Gathers was in Los Angeles Friday to attend a court hearing that will eventually determine how much of a $1-million settlement from a lawsuit he will receive. Aaron Crump, the 8-year-old son of Gathers, traveled from his home in Philadelphia with his mother, Marva, his grandmother, Phyllis, and his two attorneys, Martin Krimsky and Adrian Moody, also of Philadelphia. Marva and Phyllis testified, but Aaron was not called.

The day had long since given way to darkness at the Raymond Rosen project, causing the rows of two-story brick houses to appear even more gloomy and the high-rise flats even more scary.

In an upstairs bedroom of one of these houses, Aaron Kevin Crump was peacefully asleep when his father, Hank Gathers, collapsed while playing basketball last Sunday.

Hank Gathers knew he would have it all--or at least, more than he grew up with. As far as he was concerned, he could take that to the bank, riding atop his basketball prowess. Hank (The Bank) Gathers, as his Loyola Marymount coach, Paul Westhead, sometimes referred to him, would be a star on and off the court.
