Alabama State mourns loss of Porchea

Montgomery, AL (Sports Network) - Alabama State is mourning the loss of sophomore guard Deshean Porchea, who died suddenly after collapsing during a pick-up basketball game Wednesday.

Porchea had just completed a game with friends and walked off the court and collapsed. He was then taken to Jackson Hospital where efforts to revive him failed.

"Our campus is shocked and saddened by Deshean's sudden passing, and our hearts and prayers go out to his family and friends," said ASU President Joe A. Lee. "Deshean will be remembered for his tremendous intensity and friendly personality, both as an athlete and as a student. He will be deeply missed."

"He was just a good kid," added ASU head coach Lewis Jackson. "He played with a contagious fire that carried over to his teammates, he was a good person. It is a great loss to our team and our university."
