Andre Emmett, a star at Texas Tech under Bob Knight in the early 2000s and a standout in Ice Cube’s Big3 this season, died on Sunday, the league confirmed.

The league did not list a cause of death.

The 6-5 shooting guard was a consensus All-American in 2004 after averaging 20.6 points and 6.6 rebounds per game.

Texas Tech also posted a tweet acknowledging Emmett’s death.

Emmett was a second-round pick in the 2004 NBA draft. After a brief stretch in the NBA, he made his mark overseas, where he played professionally for multiple teams.

In a YouTube video posted prior to his Big3 debut, Emmett said he wanted to show fans “what I can still do.” He was one of the top scorers in the league.
