Zeke Upshaw, who played ISU basketball from 2010 to 2013, died in March of cardiac arrest. He collapsed while playing for the Grand Rapids Drive NBA G-League team. An autopsy showed that Upshaw, 26, had an enlarged heart with abnormalities.
“He was a great teammate, and an absolutely wonderful human being,” said head coach Dan Muller ’98. “He had a legitimate, successful professional career because of all the hard work he put in.”
