WATERTOWN, Mass. (AP) — Police say a Bentley University basketball player has died after collapsing at a men's recreational summer league game.

Lt. Michael Lawn of the Watertown Police Department says 19-year-old Joe Glynn was pronounced dead at a hospital after collapsing at about 7:30 p.m. Monday.

A teammate tells the Boston Herald there was no physical contact with any other player before Glynn collapsed.

The 6-foot-5 forward from Abington averaged 3.3 points and 3.2 rebounds per game as a freshman last season for the NCAA Division II Falcons, who finished 11-15.

Glynn was an All-Scholastic while playing at Cardinal Spellman High School in Brockton.

Lawn says the death remains under investigation but does not appear suspicious.

The university will schedule a memorial service in the future.
