According to John Antonik of WVU, former Mountaineer Basketball player, Bob Smith, has passed away.

Smith played for the Mountaineers in the late 1950s, and was a member of the 1959 national runner-up team, per Antonik.

He was a native of Charleston, West Virginia, and played forward for the Gold and Blue.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the Smith family during this difficult time.
