Margo Dydek Dead: Former WNBA Player Dies At 37

Former WNBA player Margo Dydek has died after suffering a heart attack a week ago and being placed in a medically induced coma.

Cathy Roberts, the operations manager for the Northside Wizards in the Queensland Basketball League, where Dydek was head coach, told The Associated Press that Dydek, 37, died early Friday.

The Poland-born Dydek suffered the heart attack on May 19 and collapsed at her home in Brisbane.

Dydek, who was pregnant with her third child, was the No. 1 pick in the 1998 WNBA draft by the Utah Starzz. She also played for San Antonio, Connecticut and Los Angeles.

Roberts said there was no other information available immediately on Dydek's death and that she was awaiting a statement from the family.
