JERSEY CITY, N.J. (AP) — Elnardo Webster, who put Saint Peter's basketball on the map more than a half century ago in leading the Peacocks to the NIT semifinals in 1968, has died. He was 74. Webster died on Tuesday in Morristown, New Jersey, after being hospitalized with a heart issue, former teammates said. Pat Finnegan, a member of the '68 team, said he was in the lobby of the hospital to visit Webster when he received a text message from Webster's wife, Sandra, that her husband had died. Webster played seven years as a pro and later served as a Saint Peter's trustee.
