RE: Yinka Dare dies...
Some of you might remember Yinka Dare. He had a stellar college basketball career but a relatively unsuccesful short stint in the NBA. He repped Naija in many bball competitions. He apparently died of a heart attack at the young age of 32. Below is a news report from ESPN.
-----------------------
ESPN.com news services
ENGLEWOOD, N.J. -- Yinka Dare, the New Jersey Nets' first-round draft pick in 1994, has died after collapsing at his home. He was 32.

Yinka Dare was 14th player picked in the 1994 NBA draft.
A medical examiner determined that Dare, pronounced dead Friday at Englewood Hospital after being rushed to the emergency room, had a heart attack due to an arrhythmia condition that was discovered when he was in college at George Washington.

He collapsed while preparing breakfast after a routine morning workout at his home.

The 7-foot-0, 265-pound Nigerian center played 110 games in four seasons with the Nets, averaging 2.1 points and 2.6 rebounds. He had only four career assists, none in his first two seasons.

While at George Washington, he led the Colonials to consecutive NCAA tournament appearances under coach Mike Jarvis. Dare, who spent his prep years at Milford Academy in Milford, Conn., left for the NBA after his sophomore season at GWU.

Dare is survived by his parents, Gabriel and Joan, and two sisters and a brother.
