Hoosier Neil Reed Dies At 36

((HT: CNN))

Former Indiana basketball player Neil Reed, who was choked at an IU practice by then-head coach Bobby Knight, died at his home in California from "heart complications" at the age of 36.

When video of the incident leaked to the media, IU President Myles Brand put Bobby Knight under a "zero-tolerance" policy which lasted all of a few months after Knight grabbed a student by the arm on campus as one was walking past the other.

Here's the incident from 1997...

Reed had just started coaching at the high school level in California and had been welcomed back into the Indiana family by head basketball coach Tom Crean.
