DUPREE — Authorities say a boys basketball player in South Dakota died suddenly during practice, according to the Argus Leader. The name of the student or his cause of death has not been reported.

Ziebach County Sheriff Gary Cudmore said the team was doing wind sprints when the Dupree High School student collapsed Monday evening. Life-saving measures were performed until emergency responders arrived. Cudmore says he drove the ambulance to Indian Health Services in Eagle Butte, while attempts to revive the player continued.

The Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement is investigating the case.
