Former WNBA player Margo Dydek has heart attack
The 37-year-old, who is pregnant with her third child, collapsed at her home in Brisbane and was rushed to the hospital in an ambulance, the Associated Press reported. She had been working as a coach for the Northside Wizards in the Queensland Basketball League.
Dydek, 7-foot-2, was selected by the Utah Starzz as the first overall pick in the 1998 draft. A two-time all-star, she also played for the San Antonio Silver Stars, Connecticut Sun and two games for the Sparks in 2008.
She had a career average of 10 points and 6.6 rebounds and was once said to be the tallest active women's professional basketball player in the world.
