For those of you who grew up watching the White Shadow, I am saddened to report that actor Ken Howard has passed away. One of the great shows of my childhood and still watch a rerun every now and then.

It was an interesting show. A very small glimpse of the issues confronting a coach in an urban school where the basketball court is an escape from what they have to deal with off the court.

As a kid, I loved that show.

Jay Bilas played against Carver's star Coolidge in one of the episodes.

Great show. True to the game and the street, with some racial stuff mixed in. Pretty gutty show.

When Ben plays CYO hoops in these small school gyms I think of the Carver High gym. Sadly no Cool and the ice cube, You Can't Beat Carver and Go Go Gomez signs. RIP Coach Reeves.
