A Midlands high school basketball player has died after he collapsed during a practice session in Columbia last night.
Vic Sims of Dutch Fork High School died from apparent cardiac arrest Wednesday night at Providence Hospital in Columbia.
Athletic director Bill Kimrey says Sims was practicing with his AAU team at Dreher High School in Columbia when he collapsed.
The 6-foot-4 swing man averaged nearly 20 points per game.
He helped Dutch Fork to its first conference championship earlier this year.
