Former WNBA player Margo Dydek, who led the league in blocked shots nine times, died Friday after being placed in a medically induced coma following a heart attack last week.
The Polish-born Dydek, pregnant with her third child, collapsed at her home in Brisbane, Australia on May 19; she was early in her pregnancy and the fetus died.
Dydek is, of course, the WNBA's all-time leader in blocked shots, finishing with 877 in 323 career games. The first overall pick of the 1998 WNBA Draft by the Utah Starzz, the 7'2" center was also a member of the Connecticut Sun's 2005 Eastern Conference championship team.
