Tragedy Hits UW Basketball Team
Laramie, Wy – A spokesman for the University of Wyoming says the brother of a U-W basketball player has died in Laramie.
Redshirt freshman Travis Nelson's brother died yesterday (Wednesday). The spokesman said he didn't have the brother's name because the victim was not a U-W student.
A staff member of Emergency Medical Services at the Laramie Fire Department said emergency workers were called to an apartment in Laramie at 6-20 P-M yesterday in response to a call about a 22-year-old man who had stopped breathing. They took the man to Ivinson Memorial Hospital in Laramie.
Apparently the man showed no obvious signs of trauma.
Hospital officials declined to release any information.
Travis Nelson came to U-W from Linn-Mar High School in Marion, Iowa. He played nine minutes in last night's home game against Montana, all in the first half.
