A former college basketball point guard was tragically been found dead at the tender age of 27.
Neena Pacholke, a former point guard at South Florida, was reportedly found dead over the weekend.
Neena Pacholke, who helped lead Freedom High to the program’s only state tournament berth in 2013, was working as a weekday-morning news anchor in Wisconsin and was engaged to be married.
Pacholke’s sister told the Tampa Bay Times the former basketball player died by suicide.
“My sister was by far the happiest person I thought I knew,” said Kaitlynn, an assistant women’s basketball coach at Southern Mississippi and former Freedom High teammate.
“Sometimes you just don’t know what people are going through, no matter how much you think you know someone. … My sister had access to every resource you could imagine. She was loved by everybody. She was so good at her job.”
Prayers to her friends and family.
