Condolences to family and friends of UNIVERSITY OF NEVADA-LAS VEGAS men's basketball radio analyst and former UNLV and NBA player GLEN GONDREZICK, who died MONDAY in HENDERSON, NV of apparent complications from heart transplant surgery he underwent in SEPTEMBER. He was awaiting an airlift to UCLA MEDICAL CENTER in LOS ANGELES when he passed away.
GONDREZICK, 53, was a member of the REBELS' 1977 Final Four squad, later playing for the NEW YORK KNICKS and DENVER NUGGETS. "GONDO" then joined the REBELS' radio crew, calling the action for 17 years; he returned to the mic just eight weeks after his transplant surgery last season.
