Denny Crum, the Louisville coaching legend who passed away on Tuesday at 86, was remembered by the current coach of the Cardinals’ arch-rival, John Calipari.

Crum led the Cardinals’ basketball program for 31 seasons from 1971-2001. He won 2 national championships and led the program to 6 Final Four appearances. He was inducted into the Naismith Hall of Fame in 1994.

To show Crum’s significance at UofL, the court at Louisville’s Freedom Hall was officially named after Crum in 2007, and when the program moved to the KFC Yum Center, the court kept its namesake.

“Denny Crum was truly a Hall of Famer,” Calipari shared on social media. “He was kind, had a great sense of humor but make no mistake about it, he was a competitor who wanted to win every game. My heart goes out to Susan and his family and friends. We lost another legend in our state today. Rest in peace, my friend.”
