OWENSBORO, Ky. (AP) -A Kentucky coroner says preliminary results from an autopsy show Southern Indiana center Jeron Lewis may have died from a heart condition.
Daviess County, Ky., Coroner Bob Howe says the autopsy Friday found the 21-year-old player had an enlarged heart.
Lewis collapsed with 4 minutes to go in Thursday night's game at Kentucky Wesleyan and later died. A Southern Indiana spokesman says fans saw Lewis hit his head on the floor, but Howe says there were no signs of head trauma.
Howe says Lewis may have been unaware of his condition.
The 6-foot-8, 260-pound Lewis was in his second season with Division II Southern Indiana, averaging 12.8 points and 8.0 rebounds in 13 games.
