Ed Davender suffers heart attack, in serious condition (UPDATED)

Mrs. Tyler Thompsonover 5 years


Some unfortunate news to pass along: former UK great Ed Davender suffered a heart attack yesterday and is currently in serious condition at UK Hospital. Davender, 49, played for UK from 1984-1988 and ranks 11th on the all-time scoring list, with 1,637 points. In 2010, he was sentenced to eight years in prison for a UK Basketball ticket scam in which victims lost tens of thousands of dollars. Our thoughts are with Davender and his family in this critical time. UPDATE: According to the Herald-Leader, Davender is now on life support. His friends and former teammates are holding a vigil by his bedside.
