Former ISU player Upshaw dies after collapsing on court”

An NBA G League player for the Grand Rapids Drive has died after collapsing toward the end of a weekend game.

The 26-year-old scored 11 points to help his team garner a playoff spot against the Long Island Nets in a crucial 101-99 victory.

Here is the full statement, which says that Upshaw "made his transition at 11:16 a.m." on Monday morning.

The Grand Rapids Drive released the following statement from Upshaw's mother Jewel Upshaw. "Our thoughts are with all of Zeke's family and friends during this hard time". We ask that you respect our privacy at this time.

Upshaw fell to the ground with about 50 seconds left in Saturday night's game. Upshaw also played for the Drive last season.

"Our thoughts and prayers extend to the entire Upshaw family during this terribly hard time", said Jeff Bower, General Manager for the Detroit Pistons, who oversee basketball operations for the Grand Rapids Drive as part of the club's single-affiliation "hybrid" partnership. During his career in the now-G League, he averaged 7.6 points and 2.63 rebounds per game.
