  • Another College Basketball Death

    Just pulled this off the MSNBC web site.

    CHILLICOTHE, Ohio (AP) - An Ohio University-Chillicothe basketball player died after collapsing during practice.

    Jonathan Davis, 20, a sophomore from Hampton, Va., fell to the floor Monday evening and was taken to Adena Regional Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead, school spokesman Jack Jeffery said.

    The school was not aware that Davis had any health problems, he said. A message was left with the county coroner.

    The school suspended men's and women's sports events and practices. Grief counselors were made available for teammates and classmates.

    The school is about 45 miles south of Columbus and is a branch of Ohio University's main campus in Athens.

    Memorial arrangements are pending.

    I saw this new item also in my local news, 'cause I live in Columbus. Until the autopsy is finished we won't know if it was HCM. My heart goes out to his family. Sooo young.......

    FYI Ohio University is a smaller college, separate and different, from Ohio State University, main campus in Columbus.
