“The IU Athletics family is heartbroken about the passing of Wayne Radford,” Indiana Vice President and Director of Athletics Scott Dolson said in a statement. “Wayne was an outstanding student-athlete and a key member of some of our basketball program’s all-time great teams in the 1970s. He was also one of our most involved and passionate alums for more than four decades, an active Varsity Club member, who made an enormous contribution to our department as a member of our Varsity Club National Board of Directors.
