Former UH Basketball Player Reggie Chaney Dies Suddenly at 23

Former Univ of Houston basketball player Reggie Chaney has tragically died aged just 23 years old., according to a report from TMZ.

Chaney was a member of the Cougars team that made the Final Four in 2021.

The outlet reports:

The cause of death has not been revealed.

The school’s president, Renu Khator, released a statement, saying, “The news has left us with sad and heavy hearts.”

He was a “giant among giants of Houston basketball,” she added.

The outlet reports:

Chaney initially began his college career at the Univ. of Arkansas in 2018 — playing in 34 games his freshman season.

But, following his sophomore year with the Razorbacks, he transferred to Houston, where he became a key part of the 2020-21 squad that advanced all the way to the NCAA tournament’s Final Four.

This past season with the Cougs, the last one of his college career, he played in 35 games and earned American Athletic Conference Sixth Man of the Year honors. In total, he logged time in 104 contests for the Cougars in his three years at the school.

News of his death has rocked the hoops community … with his former coach at Arkansas, Eric Musselman, saying in a statement Monday evening that he and his program are “devastated.”

“He was a relentless worker and loved by his teammates,” Musselman said.

“His family is in our thoughts and prayers.”

Justin Gorham, Chaney’s former teammate at UH, added on X that Reggie Chaney was “always dependable.”

“Glad I got the chance to lace ’em up with him; without Reg, we don’t accomplish half the things we did. Rest easy, brother LOVE.”

Chaney had been slated to play professionally later this year in Greece.
