According to multiple reports, AND1 basketball player and street ball mixtape star Troy “Escalade” Jackson passed away in his sleep last night in Los Angeles. He was 35-years-old.
Jackson appeared in just 20 games at Louisville from 1996-98. He averaged 3.0 points and 1.6 rebounds but was more known for his size (6-9, 350 lbs.) and surprising agility, a pair of qualities which helped him gain notoriety while playing streetball for the AND 1 Mixtape Tour.
