Loomsis, who is a member of the St. Joseph County Board of Supervisors, won the regional tournament by a whopping margin of 56.3% over fellow player and former NBA player James Worthy.

He spent the first six seasons of his career with the Utah Jazz, winning two championships and one of the league’s most memorable moments.

In 2014, he was named to the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.
