    Senior at 5th-ranked Southern Indiana collapses during game, dies at hospital minutes later.

    God be with his family, teammates and coaches.

    Speaking of, this is the 20 year anniversary of Hank Gathers.

    Wow... sad story. Probably some undiagnosed heart condition?

    Thoughts and prayers with his family, friends, and everyone in his life.

    Child born just last month. Absolute tragedy on all fronts.

    Jesus - how does someone that young and healthy just vanish?

    I will never understand death and will never come to a place where I can understand why so many young people seemingly die.

    This is awful.

    Bubbler - in reading your posts, I seem to remember you have some working knowledge of smaller college basketball - did you cover this team? Did you ever cover this guy?

    Broken link, Slappy.

    Here's one that I hope works. Apparently some type of head injury:

    slappy's link worked earlier. The first link didn't work for me.

    Apparently the c-p changes links as the story updates.

    Ugh. All the times you see guys, usually in football of course, getting carted off, and they end up being all right. Have seen some bad falls in basketball where guys landed on their head, but this is just horrific.
