Oklahoma State basketball player Tyrek Coger died after a 40-minute team workout on the football stadium stairs in hot weather, university officials said Friday.The Raleigh, North Carolina, native was 21 years old. No cause of death was cited.Oklahoma State basketball coach Brad Underwood broke down in tears at a Friday news conference as he remembered Coger. Underwood said he was in Las Vegas on a recruiting trip when he learned of Cogers death Thursday.This is the hardest couple of days Ive ever experienced in my coaching life. You say goodbye to players when they graduate and thats one thing, Underwood said, pausing to wipe away tears with a towel. Making that phone call to a mother is -- theres no words.niversity spokesman Gary Shutt said the team held a 40-minute workout at Boone Pickens Stadium on the stadium stairs. Shutt said Coger did not appear to be struggling, but sat down after and the team went to check on him and noticed there were issues. Shutt said 911 was called and paramedics arrived at 5:08 p.m.?Coger was taken to a hospital and pronounced dead at 6:23 p.m.The Stillwater News Press reports that the temperature was 99 degrees with a heat index of 105 degrees at 5 p.m. Thursday.?Coger moved to Stillwater earlier this month after transferring from Cape Fear Community College in Wilmington, North Carolina, where he averaged 12.2 points and 7.0 rebounds per game last season.The 6-foot-9, 240-pound power forward initially signed with Ole Miss in November but was ruled ineligible due to an SEC rule that bars junior college transfers from competing unless they have played three consecutive semesters at the same school. Coger then chose Underwood and the Cowboys.Tyrek was excited to be at Oklahoma State and had such passion for the game and was looking forward to being an OSU Cowboy, Underwood said in the statement Thursday. Losing a member of the team is like losing a member of the family. But we know our loss pales in comparison to the pain his family is going through.Last month, Coger told the Tulsa World he was excited about joining Underwoods program and playing with standout point guard Jawun Evans this season.They look for me as a threat to come in with me and Jawun being a good pick-and-roll [combination], Coger told the newspaper.OSU athletic director Mike Holder says the team will thoroughly examine its practices following Cogers death. The NCAAs Sports Medicine Handbook does not provide specific guidelines for when teams should avoid practicing in extreme temperatures.The handbook says heatstroke is the third-leading cause of sudden death in athletes, and that athletes should be gradually introduced to activity in warm temperatures over a minimum period of 10 to 14 days. Coger had been in Oklahoma since July 5, the school said.The NCAA handbook also provides a list of signs and symptoms of heat injury, notes that heatstroke is most likely to occur at the start of preseason practices and says that some athletes with certain health conditions or athletes who are not adequately in shape can be more susceptible to heatstroke. It was not clear whether that was the case with Coger.In an interview with the Stillwater News Press published earlier this month, Coger spoke of frequent headaches that plagued him during his high school days. He said he underwent surgery several years ago to drain fluid from around his brain.At the moment, Im thinking, Basketball is over, he told the newspaper, recalling his feelings at the time of the surgery. I gotta think beyond basketball now.Cogers death is the not the first tragedy suffered by the Oklahoma State athletic department.A 25-year-old woman was charged with four counts of second-degree murder after she plowed into a crowd of people during the schools homecoming parade in October. Four people died.In 2011, womens basketball coach Kurt Budke and assistant coach Miranda Serna were killed, along with two others, when their plane crashed during a recruiting trip in Arkansas.In 2001, 10 people were killed -- two mens basketball players, six staffers and two pilots -- when their plane crashed during a snowstorm as they traveled to Stillwater following a road game in Colorado.Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.

After losing all the Tests in a series they would have been hopeful of doing well in, Kane Williamson managed to retain some humour, but he knew his side was done in by a mix of difficult conditions for them, the quality of their opposition in those conditions, and their own lack of application at times. In packed schedules nowadays, you hardly get time to acclimatise, which means you dont have too many second chances. The most disappointing aspect for New Zealand will be that when they got a surface in Indore that resembled classic Indian pitches, they couldnt bat for long enough. It didnt help that they never won a toss, and India always were in the ascendency.When asked about R Ashwins hold on him - the leading wicket-taker of the series took out Williamson all four times he batted - Williamson joked: He didnt get me out 27 times. He got a few other blokes out too.On a serious note, Williamson did make a mention of the conditions. Hes a good bowler, Williamson said of Ashwin. Were always learning playing internationals. I guess its a new thing, personally as well. Come over here with so much rough, which is nice to bowl into. I suppose I was a victim of it a few times. I guess, when you are put in that situation where you are dismissed in a similar situation, you are able to learn and try to improve from that. The conditions guys are exposed to, and the quality of bowling, in a backhanded way, we can be thankful for those experiences that help move your game forward.Even before the season began, India had a good chance of going unbeaten through a long season of 13 home Tests. New Zealand, on paper, seemed the team likeliest to challenge India, which will now make India look invincible this season. Williamson, though, felt - and it did bring out some laughs - that the toss can be crucial in these conditions. The previous home season had a shift in the pitches India play on, and they have won all seven tosses since then.Winning the toss would be helpful, I think, Williamson said, when asked what advice he could give to the teams that are following him in Indias home season. Which is a challenge in itself: South Africa lost every toss as well. Certainly have to be at your best. Whether you win the toss, lose the toss, India were far superior in this series. It depends on the surfaces. Every surface has been different in this series, they were different in the South Africa series. Whether it is a good one… it is important to spend time at the crease, creating pressure. Batting first would be nice. It would help, certainly, in being more competitive. This India side is a very good team, and they certainly know these conditions better than anyone.Williamson said that while the conditions were more difficult when they batted in Indore, this was a pitch where they could have played more assured cricket. Speaking on finding the right balance between defence and attack, Williamson said: It is a challenge, certainly on wickets very conducive to spin that make attacking tough as well. Sometimes, being positive when it is doing a little bit more is the way forward. It is up tto the individual how they want to skin it, but in this Test, which was probably a little bit more like Test matches of old where its that war of attrition and you have to play long game like India showed, as opposed to Test matches prior, where 300 was a very good score, where you go out there and play positively and you get them before they get you, here was a little bit different.ddddddddddddThey exploited conditions better than us. They played very patiently with the bat, and batting was not easy when it came our time. Not just because conditions had deteriorated, but the very good bowling attack they have. Important that we come away from here, although frustrated, having learnt a huge amount as a young group being exposed in these conditions.Williamson didnt shy away from giving India the credit and said he was disappointed his team couldnt adapt quickly enough, but added that in conditions so challenging he felt the need to send players early for more experience.The more you can play in these conditions, the better youll be, Williamson said. That has to be a given. The more experiences you get in any conditions, it is a good thing. People talk a lot about county cricket and then, when you go to England, you certainly are far more aware of what to expect. I suppose this is no different. If guys can have more experience in these conditions, it will certainly be helpful.When asked if he felt his side had spent enough time here before the series, Williamson brought up the practical issue of the packed schedules. I suppose there is always those discussions, Williamson said. Another tough point as well is that you are playing so much international cricket, it is tricky to get that extra preparation you would like. So, you are having to learn on the job a bit, which is the nature of the beast, but at the same time, it is an important thing. Whether its A teams where guys are able to get extra time to come over, particularly in these conditions where you are playing more and more cricket. Indias home summer this year is 13 Test matches. So you are playing more and more in these conditions.New Zealand now have the five-ODI series to look forward to, which will be played on flatter surfaces. Williamson hoped the team doesnt carry the scars of losing the Tests into that series. Disappointing to lose the Test series, he said. At the same time, the guys are looking forward to the change of format. It will be tough again. We know India are a very good side at that as well. Its exciting. We know that wickets will more than likely be quite different again.We have got to adapt. Go out and play with that freedom, knowing that when we do play with that freedom, we play our best cricket. There will be a little bit of scarring coming out of a three-nil Test defeat. Obviously winning is a lot better than losing. Unfortunately we have lost a few on the trot, but nice to have new personnel come in who are fresh and looking forward to the one-day series. ' ' '
