The horrible news broke early Tuesday morning: Caleb Swanigan, 2017 B1G player of the year and 1st-round draft pick passed away at the age of 25 late Monday night.

It’s a devastating loss for not only Purdue, but the entire basketball community.

Current Boilermakers head coach Matt Painter addressed the news on social media.

Terribly saddened by this,” Painter said via Twitter. “Biggie had a positive influence in everyone’s life. Was such a thoughtful person and gentle soul who had to overcome so much in his life. He will be greatly missed.”

Painter coached Swanigan from 2015-2017, guiding him as he became one of the most dominant players in the country his sophomore season. Swanigan and freshman guard Carsen Edwards led the Boilermakers to a Sweet 16 berth in his final season of college ball.

Former Purdue rival Tom Crean weighed in on the sad news as well Tuesday evening with the Twitter post below:
