DeAndre Adams: Winthrop's Adams dies after crash:- Thursday, May 17, 2007
ROCK HILL, S.C. (AP) - Winthrop basketball player DeAndre Adams died Wednesday, four days after sustaining head injuries in a car accident.
The 20-year-old guard had been in a coma since the accident Saturday. He was returning home to Austell, Ga., when his car left the road, flipped and hit a tree.
Winthrop athletic spokesman Jack Frost said in a statement that Adams had "taken a turn for the worse during the night." Adams had been in a drug-inducedcoma for four days at the Atlanta Medical Center before he died, the school said. Adams played in all 35 games last season, averaging 2.1 points, 2.8 assists and 1.1 rebounds.
He was competing in a summer league in Atlanta.
Adams had dropped off one of his Winthrop teammates, Mantoris Robinson, at a relative's house and was on the way home when the crash happened. "He lived his life with great passion and enthusiasm," Winthrop coach Randy Peele said.
