A Louisville basketball player has died of cancer, but the university was unable to identify him.
Travis Thomas was in his early 30s when he was diagnosed with stage IV melanoma in November.
Thomas had played in four games for the Cardinals this season.
In the last two seasons, Thomas was an integral part of a team that went to the Final Four.
He averaged 10.7 points and 7.8 rebounds and shot 50 percent from 3-point range in 2016-17.
A postgame press conference was held Tuesday to honor Thomas.
“I know we all lost a brother,” Louisville coach John Calipari said.
“The school is devastated and we’re all going to miss him.
This was an emotional time for all of us.
He was a tremendous man, he was a wonderful person and we will miss him deeply.”
