Tony and I played basketball and softball together at EllsworthAFB. I respected him very much. I did get to meet Maxin around the time he was discharged.

I am so sorry to hear of my cousin Tony's passing. I watched him play and coach for UC, and am so proud of all his accomplishments. He was loved by so many, and will truly be missed. My prayers and love are with you family.

You don't think of UC basketball without including Tony Yates.

Hee was a great guy and unforgetable friend.
