ROCK HILL, S.C. (AP) -Winthrop guard DeAndre Adams died Wednesday from head injuries he suffered in car accident.
The 20-year-old had been in a coma since Saturday's accident. He was returning to his home in Austell, Ga., when his car left the road, flipped and hit a tree.
Winthrop athletic spokesman Jack Frost said in a statement that Adams had ``taken a turn for the worse during the night'' at Atlanta Medical Center.
A sophomore, Adams played in all 35 games last season, averaging 2.1 points and 1.1 rebounds off the bench.
He was competing in a summer league in Atlanta. Adams had dropped off Winthrop teammate Mantoris Robinson at a relative's house and was on his way home when the crash happened.
