WASHINGTON (AP) Former President Barack Obama remembered John Thompson not so much as a basketball coach but as someone who reshaped lives.

"What made coach Thompson special, what compelled us to celebrate his life today, is what he did to build young men," Obama said Saturday.

Thompson's life was honored during a virtual memorial. It was held in conjunction with the Georgetown University and the Thompson Family and through Facebook Live.
