Tragic news out of Denver.

Thomas Bashline, the trainer for the Harlem Globetrotters, was found shot to death in a D home, according to the Denver Post.

A woman at the home called sheriff’s deputies at 4:30 p.m. Friday claiming that her boyfriend was unresponsive, Martinez said.

The woman had been at work and found Bashline’s body in the bedroom. There was no sign of a robbery in the home, but sources say Bashline’s pickup truck was found in Boulder.

Bashline had been preparing for a trip to China with the team when the shooting took place.

Our condolences go out to the friends and family of Bashline and the Harlem Globetrotters.
