Steve Kelley, Seattle Times staff columnist, has a story about former basketball staff Bo Kimble volunteering with the Shoreline Community College basketball program at the invitation of coach Greg Turcott.

Athletic Director Doug Palmer says that the Dolphins are being tutored by Bo Kimble, the former #8 pick in the NBA draft who is in town to work with SCC on the “Fast-Break” offense that Kimble ran at Loyola Marymount University in the late 1980’s.

Part of Steve's article:
"That March run by Loyola Marymount in the 1990 tournament remains one of the most remarkable journeys in the history of the game. Playing without Gathers, the Lions beat New Mexico State, beat defending champion Michigan and powerful Alabama. 
"Playing a high-speed game that seemed to defy all basketball logic, Loyola Marymount averaged 106 points in its four tournament games and got all the way to the West Region final before losing to eventual national champion UNLV. 
'Twenty-one years later, Kimble, who led the nation in scoring in 1990, averaging 35.3 points, is back in basketball, helping Shoreline coach Greg Turcott revive what they call 'The System.'"
