Washington to Honor Former Walk-on. . . The Jimmy V Classic pays tribute to Jim Valvano, who died from bone cancer in 1993. The Huskies have their own connection to the cause through former UW walk-on Andrew Moritz (1996-99), who passed away at 33 years old on Nov. 26 after a three-year battle with cancer. The team will wear a patch with his initials for Tuesday's game.
