THOMPSON ABANDONS QUEST FOR GAMBLING LICENSE
Published March 21, 1996
Georgetown men's basketball coach John Thompson will withdraw his application for a NV gaming license and will pull out of a deal to make him a 10% owner of slot machines at Las Vegas' McCarran Airport. Thompson said he did so on the request of Georgetown President Rev. Leo O'Donovan. Thompson: "It was never my intention in any way to create any grief for him" ("SportsCenter," ESPN, 3/20). Tony Kornheiser lauds Thompson's decision: "Why forfeit any of his stature on something like this?" (WASH. POST, 3/21).
