College basketball is mourning the loss of a rising star.

The University of Wisconsin-Whitewater’s athletic department tweeted that the Warhawks’ guard Derek Gray“Passed away suddenly on July 24, 2022 while playing the game that he loved.”

The reason for the deceased athlete’s suicide was not revealed. The UW-Whitewater basketball coach for men was not notified. Pat Miller told Madison, Wis. TV station WKOW that Derek collapsed at a basketball camp for kids on campus. He said emergency responders arrived quickly and about 100 campers were escorted out of the facility without becoming aware of the player’s worsening condition.

Miller stated, “It was just an extremely surreal situation, where you think, ‘Okay. He’s going to all be alright,’ and then you feel very scared, which made it clear that this was extraordinarily grave.”
