Chris Gaines, the leading scorer in the history of the Hawaii basketball program, died of a heart attack on Saturday in Orlando, Fla.

Gaines played at Hawaii from 1986 to 1990 and amassed 1,734 points as a four-year starter. No player has come close to that record in the 20 years since it was set by Gaines.

He was recruited to Hawaii out of Iowa by Frank Arnold -- father of current Hawaii head coach Gib Arnold. Gaines was Iowa's "Mr Basketball" in 1986, and was thus one of the most hyped recruits in Hawaii basketball history.

Gaines has been living in Orlando in recent years, and was working in the real estate and security businesses.

Belated Thanks, Dayton

Hope his family is doing o.k. (IF still struggling maybe a Gift Fund back from UH in Thanks for all those contributions CG made for UH ?)

When Chris first got here -- as one of our few True Freshman recruits -- and unusually high visibility to boot -- much like Reggie Carter -- he struggled i think with school (to me, normal, i did, too) -- and lost eligibility -- i offered/agreed to help hole him up (at the time i lived super close to campus) but he opted to sleep in the coaches' offices 'til he got back on the roles...

He's one we thought -- with his size, athleticism and shooting skills (similar to Carl English) "could" make it in the pros .... the one tenth of one percent ...

always a really good guy ...
