Atlanta, GA (WLTX) - Former Clemson basketball player Devin Gray has died of a heart attack.

Clemson University confirmed his death to News19 Monday. Gray was 41-years-old.

The Baltimore Sun reports Gray had played basketball at a facility in Atlanta Saturday. Later in the day, he complained of chest pains, and was taken to a hospital where he died.

Gray played for the Tigers from 1991 to 1994, were he was named third-team All-ACC during the 1993-94 season. He also played two years in the NBA.

During his career at Clemson, Gray averaged 14.1 points per game and finished with 1,322 points. He currently ranks 18th all-time on the school's scoring list.

The school also says that in 1994, while he was still at Clemson, Gray suffered a heart attack. Doctors determined back then he had excessive coagulation of the blood, and he was given medication and was allowed to return to basketball.

"Devin Gray was a terrific player for Clemson," said Tim Bourret, the Clemson Sports Information Director. "He was an All-ACC talent who could score on just about any team...especially Duke.  We certainly feel for Devin's family and they will be in our prayers, especially in the next few weeks when his loss is most painful."
