AMES, Iowa -- Fans will say good-bye to Johnny Orr today during a visitation at Hilton Coliseum.

Orr was Iowa State's all-time winningest basketball coach. He died Tuesday at the age of 86.

The visitation will take place at Hilton Coliseum. It's the arena where Orr was known for entering to the "Tonight Show" theme and a trademark fist pump, helping cultivate a tremendous home-court advantage for the Cyclones.

The doors will open at 1:00 p.m. Thursday afternoon, and remain open until 8:00 p.m. for the visitation. The Orr family will be there from 4:00 to 8:00 p.m.
