Former Indiana University basketball player Neil Reed, famously known for being the player that Coach Bob Knight choked in a 1997 team practice, died on Thursday. Reed, 37, passed away in his house in Nipomo, Calif. of cardiac arrest. He played three seasons at IU, averaging 9.8 points before transferring to Southern Mississippi. A video of Knight manhandling Reed led to disciplinary action against the coach, who was fired later that year after another incident. Reed was a high school physical education teacher and girls golf coach.
