DURHAM, N.C. (AP) - Duke says former star Phil Henderson has died.
Coach Mike Krzyzewski said Monday that Henderson's mother told him that her son died Sunday at his home in the Philippines at the age of 44. No cause of death was given.
Henderson was a senior captain and the leading scorer on the 1989-90 Duke team that lost to UNLV in the national championship game. He averaged 18.5 points that year and scored 22.3 points in tournament play during that postseason.
Krzyzewski says the Duke basketball family was ``deeply saddened'' to hear of Henderson's death and called him ``a talented player and a good man with a gentle soul.''
Henderson was taken by the Dallas Mavericks in the second round of the 1990 NBA draft but played internationally as a pro.
