Very sad and RIP.
Alan Ogg, a 7-foot-2 shotblocker who played for UAB Blazers and spent parts of three seasons in the NBA, died Sunday from complications from a staph infection, a university spokesman said. He was 42.
UAB spokesman Norm Reilly said Ogg died at UAB Hospital.
Ogg played 80 NBA games over three seasons beginning in 1990 with the Miami Heat, who had a moment of silence Sunday night before playing Chicago. He also played for Milwaukee and Washington, and averaged 2.2 points and 1.7 rebounds during his career.
Ogg is UAB’s career leader with 266 blocked shots over four seasons, averaging more than two a game.
