This will go down as one of the saddest days in UK basketball history, equalling to the day we lost Cawood Ledford. Longtime equipment manager Bill Keightley passed away today after falling off a bus at Cincinnati's Great American Ballpark. He was attending opening day with a group of people.

Keightley was rushed to University of Cincinnati hospital where he died from internal injuries during his treatment.

Keightley was the UK equipment manager since 1962 and was 81 years old.

UPDATE: The Cat's Pause's Darrel Bird is reporting that Bill Keightley died of internal bleeding caused by an undiagnosed tumor on his spine.
The bleeding is thought to have began Monday afternoon according to the report. Doctors were unable to stop the bleeding which led to his death at 7:45 pm.
