Legendary Florida Gators basketball player Ronnie Montgomery passed away this week, according to a statement from the program...

"Montgomery, who held the UF record for career assists for nearly a quarter century, died Monday in Sunset Beach, N.C., due to complications from a stroke," Florida announced. He was 58 years old.

"As a player at Florida he was the quintessential point guard," former Florida assistant Monte Towe, who coached Montgomery all four seasons, said. "He made sure the ball moved around, could also score if we needed it, but really was more comfortable making sure Vernon got his shots and everybody else got their shots and trying to win basketball games."

Sad? Yes.

“Legendary”? Hardly.

Great player and sad to hear the news. Sadly, the thing that stood out to me the most was when it started he played for Florida for four years. Those days are definitely gone! RIP Mr. Montgomery
