Several members of the basketball community reacted to the news on Twitter.
Former @TexasTechMBB star,@NBA player & Dallas legend, Andre Emmett, died today,' wrote former Manhattan, St. John's and New Mexico head coach Fran Fraschilla. 'Got to know him really well at @SMUBasketball Crum Center where he worked out in off-season. Very kind & friendly to all the ballers there. I am very, very sad right now. It hits hard. RIP, Dre.'
Emmett's tenure at Texas Tech was best remembered for his interactions with hard-nosed coach Bobby Knight, who had recently joined the Red Raiders after a Hall of Fame career at Indiana.
Although he frequently drew Knight's ire, Emmett seemed to thrived with the tough love.
'Bob Knight was as tough on Andre Emmett as any player he coached at @TexasTechMBB,' Fraschilla wrote. '(There were some legendary late night running sessions) He never cracked but, rather, embraced the coaching. Ended up scoring 2,256 points.'
