Hibbert latest G'town alum to make big donation

NBA star Roy Hibbert has once again followed in the footsteps of the Celtics' Jeff Green and NBA Hall of Famer Patrick Ewing.

On Tuesday, the Pacers' big man donated $1 million to his alma mater to go towards construction of the John Thompson Jr. Intercollegiate Athletics Center, an on-campus facility scheduled to break ground on Sept. 12.

Green donated $1 million on Aug. 28 and Ewing, along with sports agent David Falk pledged $3.3 million on Aug. 25.

The donation came on Thompson Jr.'s 73rd birthday and although he played for Thompson Jr.'s son, Hibbert was quite close with the legendary coach. 

“I actually gave [Thompson Jr.] a call, and then we talked for a little bit today, wished him happy birthday," Hibbert said. "He was a big part of my development at school. He always said what was on his mind. He was out pushing me to be a better player. Obviously he’s a legend.”
