Former UCLA basketball star found dead after recording heartbreaking video

His cause of death will ultimately be determined by the Maricopa County Medical Examiner.

Billy Knight, the former UCLA basketball player who killed himself this weekend, was arrested just weeks ago for molestation, TMZ has revealed.

Phoenix police said Knight was located in the roadway in the area of Central Avenue and McKinley Street at 2:45 a.m. In the emotional video, Billy said: "I am lost in life and I feel like there is no hope..."

Authorities say there has been no sign of foul play in Knight's death.

Croatia may be best suited to counter-attacking and relying on the brilliance of Luka Modric and Ivan Rakitic against England, according to former worldwide Filip Tapalovic.

Knight averaged 14.1 points, 3.5 rebounds and 1.2 steals per game as a senior at UCLA in 2001-02. "Either I'll be in heaven or will be in hell or I'll be in limbo, I don't know, but I'll take that chance". He urged people with problems to get help.

He talks about depression and apologizes to loved ones in the video.

UCLA's basketball program issued a statement saying, "Our hearts are heavy after learning Billy Knight has passed away". "We ask that the Bruin family keep Billy's loved ones in their thoughts during this hard time", tweeted the UCLA men's basketball program. Knight started all 33 games in the 2001-02 campaign, but he never broke into the National Basketball Association, bouncing around the D-League and France and Japan after his college career. Following his playing career, he would become a basketball operations assistant for the G-League's Northern Arizona Suns, an affiliate of the Phoenix Suns, from 2016-2017.

The late Knight was apart of the UCLA team from 1998-2002, according to the Los Angeles Daily News.
