Pete Maravich Dies at Age 40 The greatest college basketball player in history was Louisiana State University's Pete Maravich. He still holds the career NCAA scoring record despite playing in an era when freshmen were ineligible and there was no three-point line on the court. In a 1973 Sports Illustrated interview, Maravich championed proper diet and exercise. He said, 'I don't want to die of a heart attack when I'm 40.' On January 6, 1988 Maravich collapsed after a session of pick-up basketball in a church gymnasium. The cause of death: heart failure. He was 40 years old. Maravich's last words were, 'I feel great.'

I had no idea he was dead. I know of him and his achievements but not being a basketball fan I just figured he was retired.

Glad I got to see him play and he was amazing... he could light up the scoreboard and his passes were hypnotic even by today's standards. Only one close to his passing prowness was Magic Johnson back in the 80s

Hard to believe but LSU during the Maravich period never went the NCAA tournament. They did go to the N.I.T. in 1970.
