Son of Pete Maravich and Former LSU player, Josh Maravich, passes away at 42

Josh Maravich, the son of legendary LSU basketball player Pete Maravich, passed away at the age of 42. Despite his father’s untimely death at the age of 40 when he was just five years old, Josh continued to pursue his passion for basketball.

Growing up in Covington, Louisiana, Josh attended St. Paul’s School where he excelled on the court. He scored over 1,000 points during his high school career and was named the MVP of his district in his senior year. Despite not being a highly recruited player, Josh fulfilled his dream of playing college basketball at LSU, just like his father. He walked on to the team and played sporadically under head coach John Brady, scoring a total of four points in seven career games.

Even after graduating from LSU, Josh remained connected to the university. He played a role in the creation of a statue honoring his father on campus. Details about his funeral arrangements will be announced at a later date.
