News Channel 11 Sports has learned from several teammates that former ETSU Buccaneer star guard Alvin West died this morning. The cause of death is not known.

The 49-year-old west is the 26th leading scorer in the school’s history and was a vital part of the ETSU five which turned the program around in the late 80’s and early 90’s.

The team rose to No. 10 in the country and started a run of four consecutive trips to the NCAA tournament.
