My heart broke when I saw this. Don Kojis was an incredible player and an incredible man.

Wow....what a sad day.  From everything I've heard or read he is easily a top 5 Warrior.  My deepest condolences to his family.

Different era and game when he played but still a great cager.  Well before my time but never heard a cross word about him on and off the court.  A great Marquette representative from all indications. 
Tis a shame, 'tis a rotton shame, for if ye can enjoy the walkin’ ye can probably enjoy the other times in yer life when ve're in between. And that's most o' the time; wouldn't ye say?

Still thinking about Don Kojis . Mr. Dodds had a very well written obituary

https://247sports.com/college/marquette/Article/Marquette-Hall-Of-Fam-Star-Don-Kojis-dies-at-age-82-175713937/

There is a recent interview with Don at the 100th anniversary event.

Also there is some silent film footage of Don from the Pros. I watched Don many times in the pros and his game is what stimulated my interest in MU basketball. He was a player much ahead of his time that truly got the hard rebounds.

I listened to Marquette games  on the radio in grade school. Don Kojis and Walt Mangahm were really incredible players.  It was because of them that I enrolled at Marquette.

What are we doing to honor Mr. Kojis?  Is something planned for the 27th?
