There has been some unfortunate news to come out of the Big3 today as it was confirmed by the league that one of their rising stars, 37-year-old Andre Emmett, was shot and killed in Dallas this morning. Emmett was a huge star in college while playing for Texas Tech and was dominating the Big3 this past season as he was the second-leading scorer. As of right now, there aren't many details about the shooting although as you can imagine, the league and it's founder, Ice Cube, are in a state of shock.
"The BIG3 is in a state of shock over the sudden and tragic death of Andre Emmett. Andre was a member of the BIG3 family for two seasons and never without a smile on his face," the league wrote on Twitter. "His kindness towards others and easy-going demeanor made him a joy to be around."
