DOVER, Del. (AP) — Former Coppin State University basketball star Larry Yarbray Sr. has died in a bicycle crash in Delaware.

Police say the 51-year-old resident of Chester, Pennsylvania, lost control of his bike and was hit by an oncoming pickup truck Saturday while riding in a group of bicyclists near Dover, Delaware. Yarbray was Coppin State’s starting point guard when the Baltimore school’s men’s team made its first-ever NCAA tournament appearance in 1990. His 622 career assists remain a school record.

Yarbray was the head basketball coach at Delaware County Community College in Media, Pennsylvania.
