A medical examiner said Tuesday that an enlarged heart probably caused the death of former Stanford basketball player Peter Sauer.
Sauer collapsed Sunday during an adult league recreational basketball game in White Plains, N.Y., and died that night. He was 35.
The autopsy, conducted by the Westchester County medical examiner's office, also showed a fractured skull. That apparently resulted from Sauer hitting his head when he fell to the outdoor basketball court. There will be further examination of microscope slides.
Sauer was the captain of the Stanford team that reached the Final Four in 1998. He played in four NCAA tournaments.
A 6-foot-7, 225-pound forward from Pittsburgh, Sauer averaged 7.9 points and 4.2 rebounds for his Stanford career.
