DEAN HOCKNEY'S INDIANA U FAN HOMEPAGE!

______________________________________________________________________

IN MOURNING:

On March 12, 1999, one of the state of Indiana's highly touted prep 
players collapsed on the court and passed away.  Lawrence North High 
School's JOHN STEWART died of an apparent heart attack while playing 
in the IHSAA 4A Regional Championship Game.  The 7-foot center, who 
was to attend Kentucky next season on scholarship, left the game in 
the third quarter complaining that he had been hit and, while talking 
to team trainers, fell to his side.  Attempts to revive him failed.  
John scored 22 points and had 13 rebounds in the game.  My prayers 
are with John's family, teammates, friends and the entire Lawrence 
North student body.  John, you will be missed!
