WESTERVILLE, Ohio (AP) — Family and friends are mourning a 17-year-old high school basketball player who collapsed and died following a team practice in central Ohio.

Christopher Randolph, a junior at Westerville South in suburban Columbus, died at a hospital after collapsing Wednesday night. Nobody can say yet what happened, and an autopsy is planned.

The Columbus Dispatch (http://bit.ly/1fpyJy7 ) reports Randolph made the junior varsity team on this year's team and coaches said he was on his way to being a starter.

Varsity coach Ed Calo said nothing on Randolph's team medical forms indicated a problem. He'd had gone through practices and camps all year.

Randolph was born in Maryland and moved with his brother and mother to Ohio about nine years ago.
