LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- Former basketball player Henry Bacon graduated Saturday, 41 years after leaving UofL to play in the NBA.
Bacon was one class shy of getting a degree when he left the university in 1972 to play professional basketball.
Now, at the age of 64, Bacon finally got his diploma.
He says he always kept his UofL student I.D. as a reminder to go back to school.
