Some of his former teammates posted on social media that Edwards had been in intensive care fighting the virus before his death.
Ex-Texas A&M Guard David Edwards Dies " Never in a million years would I have even imagined my backcourt teammate would go before his time.
A Texas A&M official confirmed the report to the Dallas Morning News. For those who prayed for him, he is now in a better place. Between the 1991-94 seasons, he appeared in 85 games, averaging 13.5 points, 7.1 assists, 4.9 rebounds and 2.7 steals per game.
Green, who was 49, also died from complications relating to the coronavirus, former teammate Lamont Middletown told the New York Post. He averaged 8.8 assists a game during his senior season, and the 265 assists he racked up during that season remain an A&M record.
The former Texas A&M basketball player was in the Intensive Care Unit in a hospital back in his hometown NY, which is the epicentre for the coronavirus pandemic in the United States.
Two former college basketball players died Monday after battling the coronavirus.
"This coronavirus has hit me in the heart". Green was a retired NYPD officer.
Edwards is one of 12 Division I college basketball players to ever record three triple-doubles in a single season. He wasn't believed to have any pre-existing medical issues. He reportedly contracted the virus at an event he was working as a DJ.
"He was our defensive lockdown guy", St. John's director of sports medicine and longtime head trainer Ron Linfonte said. A Parade All-American who played 3 years at #SJUBB Lee was our warrior on those teams. "He could score if he needed to". Green played in two NCAA Tournaments during his time with St John's, which lasted from 1991 to 1994.
