PETALING JAYA: National cager Jacky Ng Kiat Kee’s sudden death on Sunday has come as a shock to the local basketball community.

The 25-year-old Jacky, a power forward-centre, was with the national team in Jinjiang, China, for an invitational tournament to prepare for the Asian Championships in Manila from Aug 1-11. He was on the bench when he collapsed at 5pm. He was then rushed to a nearby hospital but was pronounced dead two hours later.
