Lessons from Lenny
On May 28, the Alumni Association hosted "Lessons from Lenny: Honoring the Life and Legacy of UMD's Basketball Superstar," an event to reflect on the legacy of Maryland basketball legend Len Bias, and to discuss Maryland's resilience and commitment to greatness today. A moderated panel focused on the book "Lessons from Lenny," authored by former teammate Tony Massenburg '90 and Len Bias fan and retired NBA player Walt Williams '92. In addition to the authors, the panelists included Gary Williams '68, Christy Winters Scott '90 and Johnny Rhodes '96, and was moderated by Johnny Holliday. Bias' mother, Lonise Bias, was in attendance and also gave remarks on her son’s legacy. Click here to view additional pictures from the event.
