BALMORHEA, Texas (AP) Former Maryland basketball player Cliff Tucker has been killed in a West Texas van accident that left two other passengers dead. Tucker was 29.
The Texas Department of Public Safety says the van rolled Monday on Interstate 10 near Balmorhea, 180 miles from El Paso. Investigators believe the tread on a rear tire separated and the driver lost control.
Tucker was from El Paso and played four years at Maryland, finishing in 2011. He was one of the school's top 3-point shooters, making 35 percent of his shots from long range.
