Former PL star killed in crash

Sad news today about former Holy Cross player Gordon Hamilton. Hamilton was killed in a Sunday car crash in New Jersey while driving back to his Connecticut home following the Philadelphia Eagles NFC championship game Sunday.

Hamilton, who lettered four seasons at Holy Cross, was a member of the Crusaders league championship teams in 1992 and 1993 and a co-captain of the 1995 squad. A second-team all-league pick in 1995, Hamilton led the Patriot League in steals twice (1994, 1995) and was the school's all-time steals leader entering this season (Kevin Hamilton has since passed him on that list). Hamilton also is one of four players tied for second (behind Rob Feaster's 7) for most three-pointers made in a game (6, vs. Navy in 1994). He also made the all-tournament team in 1994 after laying a then-league tournament record 37 points on Bucknell.

According to the Hartford Courant (subscription needed, but you might find a copy posted on the Holy Cross message board:
After graduating from Holy Cross, Hamilton played professional basketball in Belgium and South Africa. In South Africa he played for the Soweto Panthers, his father said. He returned to Connecticut to become an assistant men's basketball coach at Central Connecticut State University. He also held that position at the State University of New York in Binghamton.
Hamilton was in his fourth season as coach of the Watkinson School in Hartford and worked for the city of Hartford as a coach and counselor at a youth center.
