PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) Joe Boylan, a popular radio voice for Rutgers basketball and a former coach when the team made its only Final Four appearance nearly a half-century ago, has died. He was 82.
Rutgers announced his death on Monday. Boylan had a stroke on Wednesday and died Sunday, the day the Scarlet Knights lost to Houston and ended their first NCAA Tournament in 30 years.
"One of the nicest people I've ever met," said current coach Steve Pikiell, who called Boylan "our beloved radio guy."
